World Cup 2014 podcasts?

What with work and family life, I'm not getting to see that much of the World Cup. I do, however, have some time each day to listen to podcasts while riding the bus to and from work. I'd like to listen to discussions and analyses of the various World Cup games while on the bus. Can you suggest some good podcasts?

How do we watch the World Cup matches without ESPN123?

Straightforward question: we'd like to be able to watch the 2014 World Cup soccer matches, especially towards the later stages. We have ultra-basic basic cable (over the air broadcast TV via cable, no cable box), fast internet, Netflix, Amazon Prime. Since this is mostly for my dad, a solution that doesn't involve too many technical steps would be better - I'm not averse to spending some cash on it, but the thought of paying even more money to Time Warner Cable fills me with murderous rage. Obvious solutions? Creative ideas?

Which Premier League team should I learn to love?

The EPL has finally comes en masse to American TV. NBC is broadcasting three featured matches a week, and making most if not all other matches available for live streaming online. So you've got 20 teams playing 38 matches for the Premier League itself. That's 760 fixtures right there. Among them are countless derbys, inter-regional rivalries, full of so much intensity and history that they shouldn't be missed Then there's the FA CUP, the League (Carling) Cup, and a few other smaller 'cups' I can't remember the names of. There's also the UEFA Cup and the Champions League, in both of which EPL clubs compete Between the EPL itself and all the tournaments and 'cups', the sheer number of matches is a bit much, a bit dizzying, for a clueless American who loves watching soccer, but doesn't know shit about the teams themselves. So who do you love--and, by extension, who do you hate--in the EPL, and why? I don't know enough to think for myself when it comes to Arsenal or Aston Villa, Man City or Sunderland. But now that I can watch them for myself here, in the states, I'd like to learn to love one or two clubs, albeit vicariously, for now, with a little help from those in the know. Thanks

What sort of soccer play was this?

Awhile back I saw a soccer match where there was a play something like a penalty kick, something like a free kick, but not either of those exactly. I'm pretty sure it was taken within the penalty box, but not at the usual spot. The announcers were talking about how rare it was and how many teams don't practice for it. Anyone know what this could have been?

I'm going to a German soccer (football) match. What should I know?

The match is Stuttgart vs. Gladbach and it's in Stuttgart on April 14th. I'm pretty familiar with soccer, thanks to Football Manager 2012 (it's a computer game) but I guess I'm curious if there's anything I can do between now and then or on the day of the match to improve my experience, or if anyone has a good English-language source for following Bundesliga happenings. The American sports websites are okay, but I'd like to get more in-depth information. Thanks!
