I'll be in LA tomorrow and may want to watch the Fire -Dynamo game with others - any soccer pub recommendations?

I guarantee you The Olde Ship Pub will be full of soccer fans watching the playoffs. It's the official Angel City Brigade pub. You can also try The Off-Campus Pub (OCP) right across the street from the Home Depot Center.

I need to start watching some Premier League. Anyone have arguments to sway me to their side?

I've been doing that but I find no special connection with any club. The only exciting exposure I've had with the Premier League was an fun match between the Timbers and Aston Villa. My favorite teams in other sports are all local-ish: Timbers, Blazers, Ducks, Seahawks, Winterhawks, Mariners... I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to international soccer but I've seen every USA Men's and Women's match broadcast for the past 3 years or so. With Fox broadcasting every Premier League match, I've decided that it's time for me to branch out. The biggest obstacle I've found is that I'm not invested in any club. I love watching all the MLS, NFL, NBA and NCAAF games because they affect my teams in some way. I just don't feel that excitement with Premier League matches, even though I find the quality of play to be exciting itself.

Just don't go looking for EPL on Fox Soccer next season. NBC picked it up. But I can't decide if that's good, bad, or neutral for MLS coverage and ratings...

Yeah, I mixed them up. NBC is carrying every Premier League match this season. Not Fox.

Next season, you mean. . Still Fox soccer this year.

Apparently NBC plans to show 6 live matches every week. Pretty solid.

The NBC deal is solid. Plus, most people with basic cable should be able to see all the EPL games.
I got sick of having to pay for digital cable + a sports package just to watch EPL games.
