Guys & Gals We Like
I haven’t watched a single match of Euro 2012. But I have followed all of KickTV’s coverage of the tournament because it has been engaging, interesting, and funny. (And not just because it’s MLS Live commercial break filler.)
Jimmy Conrad does a great job bringing the fan experience and soccer culture of Eastern Europe to his audience back home. And the KickTV crew doesn’t shy away from the controversy either.
It’s the kind of coverage only a dedicated short-form video channel can provide, and I hope its success means we’ll see more of their crew traveling to Major League Soccer events throughout this year, and making Gold Cup 2013 the next long road trip on their docket.
Jimmy, we may have an opportunity for you to show off those moves next month…
KickTV’s Jimmy Conrad interviewed DC United Women striker Lianne Sanderson about being an English and European champion, the Olympics in her home country, and her feelings about David Beckham.
AfterEllen.com interviewed Sanderson and partner Joanna Lohman last fall, including their recounting of how they met as Philadelphia Independence teammates and eventually fell in love.
Congratulations again to Anton Hysén who with his partner Sigrid Bernsen won “Let’s Dance,” Sweden’s program in the “Dancing with the Stars” franchise.
Here is his winning show dance from the finals, which I will not comment on other than to say click and enjoy.
Posted above is a picture taken from last weeks match against Montreal Impact. Kosuke Kimura came over and celebrated with the Pid Army before heading into the dressing room. Its fair to say, he keeps his body in order. Thanks Kosuke for the wonderful view up close.

Tonight is the final episode of the season of “Let’s Dance,” Sweden’s version of “Dancing With the Stars,” and out soccer player Anton Hysén and his partner Sigrid Bernsen are one of the final two couples. They compete against Swedish actress Molly Nutley. Here is one of last week’s performances that got Anton to this point:
The final episode will be live at 1 PM CT this afternoon.
Anton Hysén made it through yet another week of Sweden’s “Let’s Dance,” and is down to the last three couples on this season of the show. If he survives tonight, he moves on to next week’s finals.
He wowed the audiences with his jitterbug to “Hound Dog”:
There’s something ironic about Stu Holden singing “Born in the USA.” That, plus lunch with Grandpa and a musical montage about life back in England wrap up the first season of KickTV’s “No Holden Back.”
