Dave and Carol talk about MLS

Month: June 2018

Ep 79: Getting Lost

Wow. It’s been awhile. How are all of you? We have a real short one here where we explain where we’ve been, followed by a couple conversations we recorded a couple weeks ago. We’ll be back again, and sooner this time. Glad to be back, and we hope you enjoy.

Here’s your chance to see what team you should be rooting for based on your food tastes, according to SBNation:

Ep 78: Set Up for Failure

This week, we’re not a Sounders podcast, because we really don’t want to talk about it. So instead, Dave and Carol delved into whether or not the USMNT would have made it to the World Cup under Jurgen Klinsmann. Also, MLS has announced their newest expansion franchise in Cincinnati, but there are some concerns about how rushed things are. And finally, they couldn’t not talk about the UEFA Champions League final. What’s in Loris Karius’ future? And how bad of a villain is Sergio Ramos? Find out right now!

First I’m just gonna leave this here. No particular reason:

Here’s the Cracked Podcast episode in which Alex Schmidt and David Wong discuss how the way we learned about World War II affects what we do today:

What’s better than a bicycle kick goal? How about Olivier Giroud’s scorpion kick goal?

And finally, Stefan Frei making a very Karius type mistake (Dave still thinks Karius’ was worse):
