I'd like to go beyond the Michael Ballack bashing that will undoubtedly start soon (EDIT: seems to have started already) and have a more general thread about the quality (or possible lack thereof) of ESPN/ESPN2's coverage of the Euros. Overall, big thumbs up for the Bristol boys on this first day of the tournament as far as I'm concerned. The production is top-notch, the Drake-McManaman duo works really well, and while yes, Ballack is a big question mark (why didn't they ask Roberto Martinez back?), I like Bob Ley and (to a lesser extent) Alexi Lalas in the studio. Also, excellent decision to stick with Euro between the two games and not cut away to ESPN News or a filler program. So far, so good--keep it up ESPN! What do you guys think?
