Holding The High Line: Marcelo Balboa Derby in Leagues Cup

Marcelo Balboa Derby

PODCAST – Holding The High Line podcasts to discuss the breaking Lamine Diack news. We discuss some player departures and some pending ones as well as check in on the club’s preseason down in Mexico. How about that 5-1 win over Querétaro FC? We are very excited about the Colorado Rapids hosting Club León in what we are dubbing the Marcelo Balboa Derby. There’s plenty of news to discuss including Lamine Diack about to be confirmed on loan, Darren Yapi being back maybe, and more potential player departures.

About Us:

Matt Pollard is an editor for 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 soccer 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. Having relocated to Pittsburgh in 2017, he covers the Pittsburgh Riverhounds of the USL for Pittsburgh Soccer Now.
