Channeling my favorite Saturday Night Live character, Stefon, I’m going to pitch Monday night’s Tottenham-Liverpool match by pointing out that if you like classic Premier League affairs, full of both tradition and contemporary drama, then look no further. This game’s got everything. It has:
1. The return of Luis Suarez
3. Tottenham attempting to break the Manchester hegemony; Liverpool attempting to break the glass ceiling and finish in the top four
5. No racist booing, hopefully
So screw Sunday’s Chelsea-United match (even though it’s on Fox though, gladly), the Liverpool-Spurs game is my pick for this weekend’s going-to-my-friend’s-house-to-watch-his-Tivo’ed-recording-on-a-huge-screen game of note.
Go… sh*t, Tottenham? I don’t know! I’m so torn!
