  1. I have never really even considered listening to a game on radio when I can actually watch it on TV… Am I alone? And I plan on watching EVERYTHING!

  2. Some people will surely have to spend some time in their cars during matches. For them, the radio service might prove invaluable.

  3. Not everyone has six hours a day to watch every game after work. Not everyone WANTS to sit down after work and watch every game.

    The radio coverage XM provided was exceptional last time around. I will miss the call-in and analysis shows they did in the mornings, evenings and between matches, but like knowing that when I hop in the car to head to work in the morning, I can pretty much listen to the first half of the morning match. Then I can have either the ESPN360 audio on the background at work or the radio feed.

  4. I’m driving the family to and from the beach for part of the tourney. While I’ll watch some games, it will make the road trip FLY by to listen in the car. Also, listening to games on the beach with frosty beverage in hand and watching the pretty girls go by is not a bad way to spend a Thursday afternoon.

    I echo Monster on the call-in show. It was like having BigSoccer streamed straight into your auditory cortex.

  5. But just because a station is an ESPN Radio station doesn’t necessarily mean that they have to pick up EVERY live event that ESPN Radio produces. I don’t doubt ESPN Radio is broadcasting all the matches. What we don’t know is how many of the ESPN Radio affiliates are picking up the broadcasts and how many matches they will broadcast.

    For example, ESPN 980 here in DC hates soccer and its sports director Andy Pollin has made it clear that he wants no part of the sport. Would ESPN compel the station to broadcast the games even at the expense of their locally produced programming? It will be interesting to see how it works out.

  6. I have a hard time seeing our local Philly ESPN affiliate (97.5fm/950am), which is in a fierce battle with WIP, broadcasting World Cup games other than on weekends. Maybe the US games I’m generally skeptical.

    Perhaps more to the point, will Mike&Mike do any promotion of the WC?

  7. Does anyone really listen to ESPN radio for soccer? Does anyone listen to KSPN in Los Angeles? I’m curious.
