The Monday after the World Cup final is when most casual fans stop giving a shit about soccer.
Eagles training camp is 10 days away, the Phillies are rolling into the home run derby and All-Star Game, and some people actually go outside and enjoy the summer weather.
But if you found the World Cup entertaining and want to see more of the sport, there are a few ways to keep the momentum going into the fall:
1. Watch the English Premier League
The EPL starts on August 10th, so you really only have a little more than three weeks until the world’s most popular domestic league kicks off.
The great thing about the prem is that it’s very accessible, with games taking place on Saturday and Sunday mornings and existing outside of the typical viewing windows in which we watch American sports. For example, if you’re a 40-year-old parent with two kids, you can get up at 9 a.m. on Saturday, make your kids pancakes, and flip on Arsenal vs. Liverpool at 10 a.m. That then takes you into college football at noon and carries you throughout the day. Same thing on Sunday, when you can watch the Premier League as a lead-in to a 1 p.m. Eagles game or NFL Red Zone.
