Those ratings are somewhat irrelevant. The broadcast is using 60 frames per second so as long as you can switch from one frame completely to another at 60 Hz you're fine. Problem is the set may claim to be able to switch at 60 or 120 or 240 Hz but that's usually measured on a grey-to-grey transition. See this:
For an LCD display, typical response times are 8 to 16 ms for black-white-black, or 2 to 6ms for grey-to-grey. The response time was traditionally recorded at the full black > white transition, which became the ISO standard for this specification on LCDs. Grey transitions are far more common in practice but in terms of pixel latency, they remained significantly behind the ISO transition.
My set is 120 Hz (LED backlight) and after some calibration (to adjust colors/contrast/brightness/etc. *and* to disable the "tru motion" crap) it looks fantastic. No blur whatsoever. Now the tru-motion is supposed to be better for sports but I'm not sure I agree. I see a huge (negative) difference watching film (makes everything look like a soap opera) and don't notice any benefit watching sports, so I just disabled it in every setup.
As to the glare, my brother in law has a Pioneer Elite. I don't think they make them any more and even if they did, not sure you would be comfortable spending *that kind* of $$. Very expensive, but also very, very nice. His set is in the living room with a full-wall window to the right, and there is zero glare.
In some cases the glare comes from a protective screen that can be removed, so if you don't have kids/pets or if the set is up on a wall, you could google around to see if anyone has removed the protective cover from your set.
