This is the equivalent of Deion Sanders being allowed to tee up on Tim McCarver, or Mike Milbury lining up for hits from........just about any hockey player. I can't blame Brett Lee for doing what the vast majority of Commonwealth Country athletes have been wishing they could do for years! Great job by the 9 network handling it, too

If Verne saw (and called) more great events like this one, I'd have no problem with that. He and Gary Danielson did a fantastic job of calling this one.

I really wish that NBCSN would get Joe Beninati back into the mix working with Andy Brickley, or any of the other color folks. John Forslund was really not up to the task calling the game last night, and Joe B isin the top 5 in the league to Doc Emrick, and maybe the Blackhawks crew, among others, for calling live action and not getting behind or taking "smoke breaks" to catch up to the action.

I think that one of the key draws of MLS is that US cities have a team to call their own. Televising a national game of the week in any sport featuring big market teams doesn't dampen then enthusiasm for the local franchise (unless their w-l record has already done that for them), and minor league baseball is not hurt by the attention that MLB gets in its markets.
I love watching EPL matches both because of the big stars (including a couple of American ones) that play there, but also enjoy MLS to see how games affect the two teams I follow, the Timbers and DC United.
If NBCSN is producing its own content, they also have considerable motivation to cross-pollinate (however subtly) the product placement between the two leagues, and the beauty of highlight shows is that they can always be pre-empted by live events.

JRlanger beat me to it... Charlie Slowes can be a bit cheesy at times, but he really nailed this one... Dick Stockton seemed like he was just happy for the game to be over so he could get to happy hour.
