Football. Being an American, I call it soccer. It's finally catching on here. But the rest of the world has been privy to some of the best athletic competition you could hope to see. If you want to see what the world has to offer, check out the TV Schedules at FOX SportsWorld. They carry the English Premier League, which is the top national competition today. But to see the best in the world take on each other, read up on the Champions League. The best teams from every European country compete in this tournament, and the quality of play is staggering. ESPN2 carries some of the games in the US. If international soccer is more your speed, try to get tickets for Euro 2004 in Portugal. It's like the World Cup, but instead of the US and Brazil, they throw in Iceland and Russia. Still, it's excellent soccer.
