Okay, so Drew came up lame with a sore throat, leaving Matty and I to fend for ourselves and sending the podcast into a downward dive/30-minute discussion about Landon Donovan. We follow that up with another 30-minute discussion about the CONCACAF Champions League (CCL).
At some point, in perhaps a show of solidarity or more likely a show of that pessimism that could come only from a couple of Mariners fans, we projected good things for each other’s club. I for Portland, and Matty for Seattle.
Despite advertising a 2nd segment as a discussion about MLS front office personnel decisions—regarding past players and whether or not we’ll see any future Ivy League day traders being hired into technical director positions—we had to cut the segment from the podcast due to mass overages in the first segment. We hope to pick up the nerds-vs.-jocks talk next week.
This is one of our longest running podcasts at 70 minutes, but it’s still a good one. I hope you enjoy!
