(Terry Cartwright Television Ltd via AP)Mattie Sullivan cannot believe he is making the leap from American soccer to the Premier League. But Sullivan wont be seen in the Premier League anytime soon, and not just because the competition is suspended. This is an opening scene from the The First Team, a TV comedy series which premieres on the BBC in Britain next week. The series largely focuses on the off-field antics of Premier League players with more cash than common sense.
