Batman is a comic book character created in 1939 by Bill Finger and Bob Kane. Valencia CF is a soccer team (or “club” if you want to be fancy) that was founded in 1919. Batman wears a bat on his chest to strike fear into the hearts of criminals, a superstitious and cowardly lot. Valencia has a bat on their team crest, presumably to strike fear in the hearts of other football clubs, who may or may not be superstitious and cowardly. As you can see, there is a lot of room for confusion there—Batman fans have a long history of wandering into soccer games unawares, mistaking them for comics conventions.

Coach Ted Lasso is back, and he still doesn’t understand offsides. In the second commercial for NBC Sports’ coverage of the English Premier League, he tells U.S. and Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard that he “has a better understanding of who killed Kennedy” than he does offside (spoiler: it was the mob).
