Is the Premier League Coming to

During halftime of the Netherlands vs. Uruguay World Cup semifinal yesterday, I was looking at the schedule for soccer during the upcoming months and one thing that I found surprised me. Listed on Aug. 14 at 7:30 a.m. is the Barclays Premier League, there were no teams listed but same type listing was also scheduled for Aug. 21. Last year,, then ESPN360 was not able to show the games on their Internet network because of an agreement with FSC, but if they worked this out, it would be a great service for fans. With the Barclays Premier League on board, the streaming network now features the German League, Italian League, Spanish League, Dutch League, and Portuguese League. Now that is a network for soccer.

I don't know if this is a misprint or something like that, but bringing the Premier League would be great for people who don't have access to a tv during the game and have to be by a computer. I was wondering if anyone out there had any further information about this.

I also noted that they are advertising that more than "800 games" will be broadcasted on ESPN3. If that covers a season of 10 months that equates to roughly 18 games a week. Last year they were only putting on 2 bundesliga, 1 dutch, 1 portugese, 3 serie A, and 3 spanish, and 1 english second division game a week for a total of 11-12 games a week. So if espn's numbers are correct, they are really going to be increasing the number of games on espn 3 this season, I can't wait for the club season, i think it will be greater then the world cup except for the whole rooting for USA, that will never be topped. thank you espn
