Bill Simmons and I had a similar feeling after the World Cup: We both thought we should give EPL a chance.
Oddly, I was talking to Matt Vautour about this one day before Simmons wrote about the same idea and Simmons picked his team today. He also did a nice job of breaking down the league and which teams are worth rooting for. I'm working on my decision because the one I originally considered freaked me out and I'm not sure I can stick with it now.
Anyway, here is Simmons' story. Good stuff.
