Ted Lasso Signs with NBCSN’s EPL Coverage

“Early Drinkin’ Means Quick Drunkin’.” -Ted Lasso

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Ted Lasso is back and better than ever, now with NBCSN’s EPL broadcasting crew. NBCSN did this last year with Jason Sudeikis as Ted Lasso, an American football coach hired to manage Tottenham. The ad was a great introduction for NBC’s first season of EPL coverage and this year is even better. Lasso partners with Arlo White and Rebecca Lowe on the call and runs into Tim Howard, who Lasso believes looks like Everton’s goalkeeper. Anyway, I don’t want to spoil every joke in this so just enjoy it and, for the record, I think I would rather have Ted Lasso doing soccer play-by-play than Gus Johnson.
