THIS is why I'm watching the World Cup in Spanish. Right now on ABC: people talking about the Australia-Brazil game. Blah blah blah. Talk talk talk in the studio. Right now on Univision: a reporter walking down the street in Munich, surrounded by Brazilian fans beating on drums. Analysis, schmanalysis! Show me more crazy Brazil fans! Earlier they were showing an anchor in a studio surrounded by scantily-dressed women (in extremely tight Brazil shirts) who were sambaing their hearts out and telling the guy they were supporting Brazil in this match. REALLY. I couldn't have guessed.

Also, commercials - and commentary - are less annoying when you can't really understand them.
