Dave and Carol talk about MLS

Month: November 2019

Ep 106: Farewell

Yep, the time has come. Not only are we saying farewell to the season, but we are saying farewell to this show (mostly), and to you, all our friends. This week, Carol and Dave talk about the experience of winning an MLS Cup at home, and how Carol’s badassery gave us the best parade experience ever. Also, we take a look at the travesty that is the new Chicago Fire crest. And finally, we talk about the show and it’s past, and what you might see from us in the future. It’s been a great run, and we’re proud of this. Thank you everyone who listened to us for enjoying a great four years with us.

Oh, but we have a lot of links for this episode.

First, we need to take a look at the fabulous Seattle MLS World Cup hats: <blockquote class=”twitter-tweet”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>They beat you to it, <a href=”https://twitter.com/ChicagoFire?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>@ChicagoFire</a>. <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/MLSCup?src=hash&ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>#MLSCup</a> <a href=”https://t.co/0m8EV12tAU”>https://t.co/0m8EV12tAU</a></p>— Major League Soccer (@MLS) <a href=”https://twitter.com/MLS/status/1193708676382507008?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>November 11, 2019</a></blockquote> <script async src=”https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js” charset=”utf-8″></script>

Speaking of disasters, here’s the 90’s LA Galaxy kit:

Of course, some people are questioning the parentage of this new crest:

I would give credit for this meme, but I honestly don’t know where I found it. If you made it, let me know and I’ll credit you.

Thanks for everything, all of you! Keep in touch!


Hey guys! I case you were wondering, Dave and Carol are more than a little excited to have and MLS Cup right here in Seattle. This week they talk about what it means to have the game here.
