Ep 100: Episode Freakin’ ONE HUNDRED with Alexi Lalas (no, really!)

Holy crap, guys! We made it to episode 100! And to help us celebrate this milestone, we got soccer legend Alexi Lalas to join us and talk about the Women’s World Cup. Plus, Carol and Dave reminisce on the history of the show, and our hopes for the future of it. Thanks for being with us for 100 episodes, and on!

Just one note today, here’s a piece on Megan Rapinoe’s spread in Sports Illustrated: https://www.nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-out/megan-rapinoe-first-out-lesbian-pose-sports-illustrated-swimsuit-issue-n1004331

Ep. 99: Around the League

Hey, maybe it’s about time we actually talked about what’s going on in this league that we ostensibly follow. This week, Dave and Carol talk about why MLS decided to comply with FIFA’s Solidarity Payment and Training Compensation rules. Also, Zlatan walked into another team’s locker room. Was that okay? Then they discuss what the table looks like one third the way through the season, and finally some wrap-up on the end of the transfer window. Here’s a jam packed one for you guys.

First, here’s an outstanding breakdown of the RSTP rules from Miki Turner over at Sounder At Heart:
