As you may remember from last week, our resident Evertonian, King Hippo, is in recovery after the shock of the hiring of Samuel “Fat Sam” Allardyce as Everton’s manager. Not knowing the history of this asshole, I did some cursory Wikipedia research and found out exactly why Hippo hates him so.
Consider him a Roger Goodell-like weasel with a Jeff Fischer-like ability to get jobs he has consistently proven he cannot excel in.
So, a few of us have promised to pitch in and take over the Saturday morning soccer open threads. This weekend, however, is the start of Bowl Season, so Mr. Hippo WILL make a special appearance later on today to preview the days’ JV Footy games. No doubt there will be gambling advice.
For now, I will walk you through

the action on tap for today in the fast kicking

I will NOT be calling it Lesser Footy as it is clearly not. Roger Goodell can go fuck himself.
Anyhoo, while Mr. Hippo devotes his time and energy solely to the English Premier League, I’m more of an International soccer slut. I’ll watch a game from any league that’s on TV. Preferably broadcast by a Spanish language network. Because this:

So, what’s on this morning? Funny you should ask! Unfortunately, the Mexican League wrapped up the Apertura season earlier this December with Tigres winning the title over Monterrey in an All-Monterrey derby final.
Wait, what was I talking about? Oh yeah, soccer on TV. In case you don’t know, there is a great app called Live Soccer TV that tells you what games are being broadcast on TV and over the Internet. Anywhere.
And when I say anywhere, I mean ANYWHERE. Anywhere games are being played and anywhere they are being broadcast.
Seriously, it’s amazing.
Here are today’s selections for the US:
All times are, of course, Pacific because that’s the best time and that’s where I live.
As an example, here are the EPL listings for Canada:
And here is La Liga and the Club World Cup:
And so on and so on. Truly an amazing app. And it’s FREE! Here’s a link:
I’m pretty sure they have one for IPhone.
That’s all for me. Enjoy the hot action on the field and in the stands.
