Grant interviews Univision's Luis Omar Tapia, who's starting his 26th straight season broadcasting the UEFA Champions League. Tapia argues why he thinks English speakers should watch Champions League on Univision (one reason: a lot of it is free), how Spanish-language game broadcasts are different stylistically from English-language ones, the stories behind his hundreds of nicknames for prominent players and coaches (as well as his own nickname, Panda), his thoughts on so many USMNT players (10) playing in this season's UCL group stage. He also tells a great Diego Maradona story.
