It's rare in 2014, but we as American soccer fans have two choices for watching the World Cup: we could watch the English version on ESPN/ESPN2/ABC... ore we could watch the Spanish broadcast on Univision.
Personally, my rule of thumb is this: if Ian Darke is calling, watch ESPN. If he isn't, WATCH UNIVISION, BECAUSE IT'S THE BEST, EVEN IF YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND SPANISH (I do, a bit, on account of being half-Cuban)
Simply put, they give the event the passion and joy it deserves, whereas American TV is staid and serious. If you don't believe us:
You see, this psychic chicken picked Mexico over Cameroon
The owners were excited:
