It's been over 2 years since FOX Soccer was shut down and replaced by FXX.

Ever since I started watching soccer on English-language U.S. television regularly in August 1994 (as a replacement for Major League Baseball, which had a player strike and had to cancel the World Series that year), I have always believed that the development of home-grown North American sportscasters is one small but essential element to the growth of soccer as a televised sports entertainment product.
