Wow:


For those who celebrate Christmas, how nice it'd be to have our teams win the World Cup seven days before Christmas Day!

For those of us in the US, it'll be interesting on who will win the TV rights to the 2022 World Cup. 

Also, if said network has NFL, NBA, NCAA Football/basketball rights, and NHL hockey how will they shoehorn the broadcast of the soccer games during that time of the season?

This will be interesting.

(edit to add NBA & NHL)

I'm more worried about liver damage here in Britain. 

Brits like to drink a lot of alcohol during the World Cup. And then we also like to drink during the Christmas period. So, here's the scenario: England win the World Cup (the final takes place on the 18th December). They drink a lot. As they have during the tournament.

And then a mere seven days later, the Christmas alcohol consumption will begin.

Not good. ;-)

But, joking aside, that will be interesting about TV schedules. I bet they hadn't considered that.
