A few months back TOR hipped you to a new soccer themed chat show entitled "Extra Time" (not to be confused with Shep Messing's web-only show of the same name on MLSnet.com). With the reel for the show now having made the rounds, it looks like Setanta Sports has come out on the winning end of the list of suitors.
Now known as EXTRA TIME! with RAZ ADOTI & COBI JONES , the LA-based show is slated to debut in September (which is still bikini season in southern California, so hopefully the programming team will see fit that we all benefit from that) on Setanta North America, Setanta Canada, Setanta Australia, and Setanta Ireland, giving them access to over 30 million viewers. That's like everyone that every watched FC FOX, The Game of Their Lives, and The Football Factory combined. And tripled.
No firm air date has been set yet but you'll know something as soon as I know something. Word is that there will be a kickoff party for the show at The Home Depot Center around the time of the shows debut featuring Cobi Jones, (the show's producer & co-host), David Beckham and various other members of the American soccerati. Hell, if this Chiva girl is there I might have to make a rare Left Coast appearance (I've got warrants out on me there) my damn self.
You may not have the juice to gain access to an event that's as baller as this but I do. Subscribe to The Offside Rules and you could win 2 tickets to the party in LA. But I'm not flying anyone anywhere so you hopefully live west of the 215 or you're sleeping with an airline employee.
