The funny thing is that they say Friday August 8th, but I was up early this morning watching the US Men's Team on the Soccer channel. You'd think they'd want to let people know it's already on.

Basketball, however, doesn't start until Friday.

The soccer channel must have been on 110 earlier in the week since I could watch it. I can't get either now. (I'm awaiting a service call to realign - I can't see 129 at the moment).
