Europe embraces Latino flair, how about the USA?
Ten minutes into Tuesday's Champions League game between Manchester City and Barcelona, TV commentator Martin Tyler told us "There are South Americans everywhere you look on the pitch here."

"If the rights are already fixed, there's little incentive to FIFA to award 2026 to the U.S."

-- Juan Carlos Rodriguez, the president of sports for Univision Communications, on FIFA's decision to award the 2026 World Cup rights to 2018 and 2022 rights-holders Fox Sports and Telemundo without opening the 2026 rights up for bid, which Rodriguez said Univision would have taken "seriously." FIFA's Jerome Valcke said FIFA cut the deal because of fears that Fox Sports and Telemundo would sue FIFA for switching the 2022 finals in Qatar from the summer to late fall. An apparent "sweet deal" calls for a modest increase of 10 percent in the fee for the 2026 tournament for which the USA is one of the favorites to host. (New York Times)
