On Wednesday, Instead Of Watching A 7th Heaven Rerun . . .

Click on over to ESPN2 and check out Once in a Lifetime: the Extraordinary Story of the New York Cosmos. The good people at SoccerTV.com assures us that it'll be on the Duece tomorrow night at 9pm Eastern. This is how they describe the film:

"The documentary chronicles the rise and fall of the New York Cosmos of the defunct North American Soccer League (NASL), with appearances by former Cosmos stars including Pele, Franz Beckenbauer, and Giorgio Chinaglia.

Once in a Lifetime made its debut in the United States this past summer at selected theatres."

Either way, it's a good break from watching non-soccer crap on TV.

In other eye-numbing news:
Look for this one to be picked up live on GolTV and shown a couple of days later on Telemundo. [Eurosport]

SoccerBlog.com has the scoop on a new Maradonna documentary to be released by the end of the year. At least the music should be pretty good. Click on the last link to Emir Kusturica's site for more pictures. [SoccerBlog.com]

The Gaffer has set the table for Champions League Matchdays 2 & 3. As of right now, it looks like ESPN2 will not carry a live game on Wednesday, September 27. If you have ESPN Classic, you will get two tape-delayed matches next week. It'll be Real Madrid v. Dynamo Kyiv next Tuesday and Werder Bremen v. Barcelona the following day, both will have a 5pm Eastern start time. Expect the same set up for Matchday 3 in October. If you miss any of the goals this season, ESPN2 will be showing a CL highlights show at 2pm Eastern on the Fridays following CL matches. [EPL Talk]

Games of note on this week:

Roma v. Inter Milan
2:30pm Eastern, LIVE

The BIG MATCH tomorrow. Will Mancini keep his job if Inter losses?

Liverpool v. Newcastle United
2:55pm Eastern, LIVE

Setanta Sports USA

Will Rafa's Reds get the much need three points, can Roeder build off of the West Ham result?

Manchester United v. Arsenal
11:30pm Eastern

FOX Soccer Channel

I'm not exactly sure what channel FSC gets this from (probably Sky Sports), but if you want to have a good laugh, watch this rerun of the Man U v. Arsenal game. Fan Zone is what they call it and it's basically a fan from each team calling the game together. If anything, start watching this around the 80' of the game.

Borussia Moenchengladbach v. Borussia Dortmund
2:25pm Eastern, LIVE


Watch Kasey Keller and one of my favorite Agries, Federico Insua, take on Dortmund. Mary, you'll like that Insua's nickname is El Pocho.

Liverpool v. Tottenham
7:30am Eastern, LIVE

Setanta Sports USA
Martin Jol could use three points himself.

Celtic v. Rangers
7:30am Eastern, LIVE

Setanta Premium - Closed-Circuit TV

You'll have to go to your favorite pub early to catch this one, but this fixture rarely disappoints.

Manchester City v. West Ham United
9:55am Eastern, LIVE

Setanta Xtra (DirecTV Channel 670)

As BL noted in his post yesterday, Alan's got some 'splaining to do if if can't pick up full points against a terrible Man City.

Barcelona v. Valencia
2:58pm Eastern, LIVE

World Sport HD

This match is still listed as "TO BE CONFIRMED." It's sure to be one of the best games of the week, so keep an eye on the TV listings.

Nueva Chicago v. Boca Juniors
3pm Eastern, LIVE

FOX Soccer Channel, FOX Sports en Espanol

La Volpe won't have too many chances to get the Boca fans behind him.

Nantes v. Marseille
3:00pm Eastern, LIVE

Setanta Sports USA

Can Mr. Ribery keep the good times rolling?

Set up your viewing calendar with the help of soccerTV.com and Live Soccer TV. I don't know how I'd live without them.
