World Cup is Coming...Need help with DVD recorders

Newbiee to digital recording, I need info on DVD recorders, best media types(DVD-R's, etc..) and features. Any thoughts appreciated. I do not have cable or a satelite dish. Just regular antenna.
I tried wearing a world cup once when I was studying Martial Arts, but it was too uncomfortable...
I would buy one with a hard drive included so you can edit out any junk before burning to a disc, if you desire to keep a hard copy. I have Panasonic with a 120 gig hard drive which seems to work very well. It uses DVD-R & DVD-RAM for hard disc. I've owned it for over a year and it has been trouble free and somewhat easy to use.
What is World Cup that new baseball series?
