Summertime and the viewing's easy!

Have you noticed in the last week that you haven’t been yourself? Withdrawing from social situations? Irritable when confronted by family or friends? Finding comfort in watching re-runs of Cops on truTV? It may not be a change in diet, climate, or your number of Facebook friends, but rather the fact that you have World Cup withdrawal. Congratulations! You have moved from casual soccer fan to moderate, mood impacted soccer fanatic. Being new to these feelings you might think that there is now cure except watching MLS until the EPL starts up next month. While MLS continues to improve as a coping mechanism for the summertime blues, there are other options. Professional teams from all over the world are coming to America in the next few weeks and will be featured prominently on television and online. So rest assured, “The Scoring Third” has the cure! Below is a list of key matches over the next few weeks for international club teams stateside. If you can’t get to one of these matches at least try to tune in as that is the only way you will begin recovery from this disease. Special note, Sunday July 25 for those in the NYC area or those watching on Fox Soccer Channel is probably the best day of the summer schedule (3 matches on TV).
