I’ve had enough — Geico’s 'timeout for nacho-tots' is the worst soccer commercial I’ve ever seen

After watching the torturous 0-0 draw between England and Slovenia I’ve come away with one conclusion: the Geico soccer commercial is going to drive me insane.

We’re a week and-a-half into the Euros and during every game I’m forced to watch the most annoying Geico soccer commercial. If I have to hear, “timeout for nacho-tots” one more time there will be a god damn hole in my wall.

It seems Geico know how utterly dogshit their commercial is as it’s not available anywhere on the internet.

Carli Lloyd says Christian Pulisic is a contender to take Messi’s world soccer crown

Carli Lloyd just put Maradona, Messi and Pulisic in the same sentence.

U.S. women’s national team legend Lloyd is one of many former soccer stars invited to be a part of FOX Sports' live studio broadcasts in their coverage for the Euro and Copa America this summer. USMNT icons Alexi Lalas, Clint Dempsey, and Maurice Edu are also part of the panel.

FOX begins Copa América coverage with delayed audio as Argentina defeat Canada 2-0

The Copa América kicked off with Argentina defeating Canada 2-0 on Thursday, however a FOX audio delay frustrated fans who tuned into FS1.

For the entire first half of the opening match commentators John Strong and Stu Holden were on a roughly two second delay. 

FOX has had audio issues in the past, but thankfully this time at least the audio was behind rather than two seconds ahead. There’s nothing worse than the commentators spoiling what you’re about to see.

Here were some examples of what the audio delay looked like in the highlights during the first half.

Watch: Daniel Sturridge is all of us having to listen to Alexi Lalas talk on FOX

The Daniel Sturridge Alexi Lalas clip from FOX’s coverage of England vs. Denmark is absolute gold.

Sturridge is part of FOX’s coverage of Euro 2024, and you actually see the regret in his eyes on TV as he’s forced to sit next to Lalas. If there’s one thing most American fans can agree on it’s that listening to Lalas for too long can drive a person insane.
