Frustratingly Brilliant

By Fauxyginger - May 03 2015

As an avid football fan in the U.S., it frustrates me to no end that someone from the U.K. is far more knowledgable about this sport than 90% of the people here, including other analysts on ESPN and NFL Network. Ollie is a very smart, knowledgeable, and passionate person about the game of football. He's smart, he does the work, and he's a great twitter follow at @OllieUKEZ. Plus hearing him say Zed instead of Z is always a good chuckle for me.

these blokes know football better than most Americans!

I started listening as a novelty because it was funny to hear dudes with accents talking about the NFL and CFB. But i soon realized these guys know their stuff, cold. I have since subscribed and look forward to new episodes every week.
