Weekend update / Saturday footie TV sked

We yammered on during last week’s podcast about how we would be live blogging the Chelsea Fulham game from Scallywags on Saturday morning, featuring Emma, our newly converted Fulham supporter via the Fever Pitch Experiment.

Well (and move back from the edges of your seats folks), for numerous reasons that is not going to happen. Our apologies.

Check back Sunday evening, or anytime before that to read our blog, for our weekly podcast.

Soccer Saturday on television

If you’re silly enough to pay $15 a month for Setanta like we are, set your alarm for 7:40 ET to see whether Man U will slip up vs. Middlesbrough. (Unfortunately, they probably won’t.)

Staying with Setanta, at 10am ET is the game we were meant to blog live, Chelsea vs. Fulham. Unfortunately unless you’re a soccer nerd or from southwest London there probabably won’t be a lot in this game for you.

But at 2pm ET we have ourselves a money shot! GolTV has El Clasico live in your living room, as Barca trundle into the Bernabeu hoping to cement the La Liga title and avoid blushes ahead of Wednesday’s trip to Stamford Bridge. Remember, Madrid is only four points back….

At 3:30pm ET you can either flip channels quickly, roll the second TV into the living room, or (most likely) put your laptop on your lap where it’s supposed to be and watch TFC take on Colombus at BMO. It’s on the CBC main network and streamed online.

And if you’re really up for it, Fox Sports World Canada has USL action from 5pm: Cleveland City Stars vs. the Rochester Rhinos.
