In Episode #41, I covered the truth about the gender pay gap and refuted the often-cited statistic that women earn $0.77 on the dollar that men earn for the same work.   

Suffice it to say, I thought I was done with this topic but over the last month, during the women’s World Cup soccer tournament, we have been inundated with news commentary, articles, and social justice sermons disguised as ESPN Sports Center episodes on earnings disparity in professional soccer. So now I am forced to jump back into the fray and expose another opportunistic faux outrage.

Regular listeners know that, on occasion, I go off the beaten path of politics, public policy and Christian apologetics and cover seemingly random topics. This episode falls in that category.

I have been watching English Premier League soccer for about four years now. During that time, I found myself intrigued by the colorful language used by the British play-by-play commentators as they described the flow of the game, its players, the fans, penalties, rivalries, and the nuances of the game of soccer. It’s like having a live Thesaurus on your TV!

For the last year or so, I watched games while armed with a notebook and a pen documenting all of the creative references. This episode is a compilation of my notes and, where necessary, a translation of what the commentary means.

By the way, you do not need to be a soccer fan to enjoy this episode. Everyone will get a kick out of the use of the Queen's English.
