Dave and Carol talk about MLS

Ep 80: Getting Robbed

Let’s get back into the swing of things, shall we. Well, sort of. In this – slightly delayed – show, Dave and Carol talk about the World Cup group stage. They have some thoughts on Germany. Also, what exactly is this fair play rule that Senegal was eliminated by? And finally, Carol decide to dig into some World Cup history. More to come soon!

German coach Joachim Low is pretty gross. How gross? This gross:

Just how many tiebreakers come before the fair play rule? Let’s let FIFA explain:

And finally, here’s what the original World Cup Trophy looked like:

  1. It’s me, your Timbers fan listener.

    Just wanted to recognize Carol’s comment about Oregon Coast and Lincoln City in particular. I grew up near Salem, so Lincoln City was our go-to coast destination. It’s got a special place in my heart as well.
    I spent many hours playing on the beach next to the Taft Mo’s and exploring the twists and turns of Regatta Park.

    My wife and I still visit a couple time a year, and it’s on my list of favorite places. Glad that you guys have been able to experience that too
