Maybe it's his dashing good looks or German accent, but I've been watching a lot of World Cup Coverage to see more of ESPN Soccer Pundit Michael Ballack.

I don't know anything about soccer, or futbol if you prefer, but I do know that I enjoy watching this man talk about it. His confidence, charm, and humor ooze when he is in front of the camera.

You can bet that I'll continue watching for the next month to get his insight on the tournament as it progresses.

I first Ballack saw him on TV a couple of years ago while watching coverage of the Euro Cup, and was excited to see him back behind the desk for World Cup 2014.
