In the wake of the destruction wrought by Hurricane Sandy, the importance of a game in which 22 men chase around a ball is once again put into perspective — mainly, that soccer is as important as ever in this time of need. With Michael driving around lower Manhattan, broadcasting from his automobile, and Rog huddled on the floor of his guest bathroom, the Men in Blazers vow to not leave GFOPs without their weekly helping of suboptimal podding.
In this week’s edition, the Blazers recap the wild and controversial Chelsea and Manchester United clash, the Merseyside derby, and NBC’s dip into the EPL broadcasting waters. Welcome to the fold, Bob, Al, and Mary.
