UNDERRATED: NBC's soccer play

Though the NFL season is in full swing, NBC has also invested in "the other football" with a weekly broadcast of a English Premier League match as well as a full plate of online offerings. Not only does this acknowledge there's a rich and rewarding sports world beyond our shores but it also sets the table for next year's World Cup in Brazil, which will be welcoming the U.S. squad after a recent big win in front of delirious fans in Ohio. Soccer, at last, is here. Isn't it?
