  2. ICYMI links sends me to a Smallwood article, not Tannenwald. Not nitpicking, just wondering if its sending us to the right place.

  3. Bit of a public service announcement: That Go90 app is a treasure trove of football broadcasts. I grabbed it to watch CCL Champions League and discovered it’s got a lot more. It’s apparently owned by Verizon and has an odd assortment of tv shows, movies and sports, but there’s a ton of good football. On Sunday morning, I was watching Roma / Milan and Celtic / Rangers….. There’s Serie A, La Liga and some South American league coverage as well. You can Chromecast the app, too. Definitely worth checking out.

    • since NWSL wen that way last season i’ve had it. i agree, nice soccer content.

    • I haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, but any issues with the streams? I heard people missed big chunks of the NYRB CCL game last week.

      • Toronto matches were fine, though the stream had a “scoreboard” in the top left that obscured almost 25% of the picture. I watched a bit of one of the RB matches without issue. And thanks to Chris for pointing out the NWSL broadcasts. Saw those, too, and forgot to mention it.
