Quoting YooYoo (Reply 1): I'm happy to say that i get a feed with English commentators.
I agree. During the US-Italy match, the students agreed to change from ABC to the local Grenadian Cable channel which ran an English feed. The sarcasm of the commentators made it so much more fun to watch!

Quoting Lfutia (Reply 3): the commentators on ESPN/ESPN2 for the WC is English and Irish.
That's what I thought, they have at least got one okay pair of commentators that are not from the US and when they are on, its a pleasure to watch and hear. It feels that they do sometimes put one or both clowns on the mic. The real fun to watch are their half time reports. Lets include all those comments too and this thread will soar!!! .
I love this thread! Just wait for me to remember things to post now...

Quoting Tom in NO (Reply 5): .considering the tens of people that must be watching here in the US...
Sorry Tom, here in the Phoenix area its been very popular. Walked through a hotel when the Germany/Poland game was on and it was packed. Also we have the Mexico factor, if you know what I talking about.

Quoting Lfutia (Reply 3): the commentators on ESPN/ESPN2 for the WC is English and Irish. well that's what ive heard when i watched the games
One of the ESPN parings is indeed an Englishman and Tommy Smith
Quoting Scbriml (Reply 9): Here in the UK we have a series of amusing Budweiser ads featuring two American sportscasters who've clearly never covered football before. Some of their comments are pretty funny.
What's a nutmeg? No idea!
The ironic thing is that the US announcers actually pointed out a nutmeg in the US-Italy game.
