Soccer Saturday and the National Basketball Association

The Milwaukee Bucks surprised the entire league with a terrific season fueled in part by rookie Brandon Jennings and the assertion of Andrew Bogut as one of the league's top centers.

Another key piece? Cameroon native Luc Richard Mbah a Moute.

The Bucks had more than their fair share of international seasoning this year. In fact, early in the year they could boast that all five starters were from five different continents.

Continents, not countries.

(They also got this guy to go to 11 games. More games than I'd been to in my entire life to this point.)

Luc Richard, being from Cameroon, is a fan of our particular focus and passion ... the football. He's a passionate Barcelona supporter and, naturally, loves to profess his allegiance to his native country's Indomitable Lions

The folks from Soccer Saturday arranged to have Luc Richard join us last weekend for a conversation on all things football. He discussed his love for Barcelona, his hopes for Cameroon at the World Cup, his hopes for the first World Cup being held in Africa and his excitement at the fact that he'll be attending his first World Cup as an official member of the Cameroon delegation.

Listen in here with Luc-Richard Mbah a Moute and Soccer Saturday last weekend. 

Tune in for tomorrow morning's show as Jim and I chat with Gol TV commentator Ray Hudson toward the bottom of the hour. Show starts at 8:00 a.m. 540 AM in Milwaukee and Chicago, elsewhere. We'll have the recorded link up later in the day.
