The English Premier League returns to action this weekend, and fans all over the area are returning to the familiar ritual of waking up early on Saturdays and Sundays, putting on a replica jersey and heading down to a pub to watch the match. Even though NBC will show every match across its broadcast and online platforms, there's something special about watching your favorite team in a noisy room with people wearing the same jersey you are.
