I only watch occasionally, mainly during the World Cup. Otherwise it's MLS (Major League Soccer) since D.C. United (some call us DC U-nay-ted) is the hometown team. Otherwise I may peek in on futbol on Spanish-language channels, especially if Andres Cantor is calling the games.

I watch both the FA Premiership and the Scottish Premier League. I follow Chelsea (yes, i am heartbroken...so close...so very close last season) and the Glasgow Celtic. John Terry and Frank Lampard are my favorite players and when Terry slipped for his PK against Man U during the Champions League Final i literally shed a tear. Soccer is a beautiful sport and i recommend it to any sports fan.

I follow the New England Revolution in MLS, the US Open Cup, the SuperLiga, and the CONCACAF Champions Cup. Not all of those matches are aired, though.

I also follow the U.S. men's and women's national teams, so I'll be setting my DVR to record the Olympic matches next month (the men are up against the Dutch, Nigerians, and Japanese; the women face Norway, Japan and New Zealand).

CONCACAF World Cup 2010 qualifying has begun, so I'll be watching the US matches. Probably won't bother watching other teams until/unless it gets interesting. Mexico-Honduras could be worth watching.

I'll keep an eye out for some Champions League matches to record. I don't think we get any of the qualifiers over here, but I think I'll be able to watch some of the Group Stage.

I get Fox Soccer Channel, which shows weekend English Premiere League matches, 2-3 on Saturdays and a "match of the week" on Sunday. It makes it almost impossible to follow any particular teams, though.

I am a huge fan of soccer...... Being from Argentina I bleed Yellow and Blue.... Meaning my favorite team is Boca Jrs. Although the past 2 or 3 seasons they have sucked horribly.

I also Follow Italian soccer.... English Premier league and Spanish Primera. No favorite teams there I just catch any game that is on to watch great players play.

Is anybody else excited for the Under-23 soccer championships in the Olympics??? I seriously can't wait. That is the only reason I will watch the Olympics. And by the way.... Argentina is taking the Gold home!!!!

I don't know the Argentine U23s at all. I see you're in Group A with Ivory Coast, Australia, and Serbia. A1 faces B2 in the Quarterfinals, so USA-v-Argentina is a definite possibility.

The Argentine women are grouped against China, Sweden, and Canada, so they'll probably be lucky to steal a point before going home.
