Podcast (January 17, 2019) – Hello Rapids Fans! This week on Holding The High Line, we have a million things to talk about. Rabbi and Red begin chronologically with the Rapids signing Benny Feilhaber in free agency. We then turn to the draft, discussing how Andre Shinyashiki became a Rapids and the other blue chip recruits selected by Colorado. The guys also take some time to discuss Marlon Hairston’s departure, Burgundy and Blue legacy, and what life with the Houston Dynamo could look like for him.
Holding The High Line: Andre Shinyashiki Hype!
Rabbi takes the HTHL Talking Stick to discuss the Homegrown signings of this week and give the lowdown on who Matt Hundley and Sam Raben are as players and people. In a full segment of Ask HTHL, we make depth charts, a rough draft Starting XI, and discuss where certain players who’ve faded from the limelight fit in.
We finish the show with a sit down with Bob Liley discussing the MLS Combine.

Matt Pollard is the Managing Editor of Last Word on Soccer and an engineer by day. A Colorado Convert, he started covering the Colorado Rapids as a credentialed member of the press in 2016, though he’s watched MLS since ’96. When he’s not watching or writing about soccer, he’s being an outdoorsman (mostly skiing and hiking) in this beautiful state or trying a new beer. For some reason, he thought that starting a podcast with Mark was a good idea and he can’t figure out how to stop this madness. He also hosts Last Word SC Radio.
Mark Goodman, the artist formally known as Rapids Rabbi, moved to Colorado in 2011. Shortly thereafter he went to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, saw Lee Nguyen dribble a ball with the silky smoothness of liquid chocolate cascading into a Bar Mitzvah fountain, and promptly fell head over heels in love with domestic soccer. When not watching MLS or coaching his son’s U-8 team, he’s generally studying either Talmud or medieval biblical exegesis. Which explains why he watches so much MLS, probably. He covers the Pittsburgh Riverhounds of the USL for Pittsburgh Soccer Now. He also writes for American Soccer Analysis.
