Holding The High Line: Memories From Toronto With Kosuke Kimura

Kosuke Kimura

PODCAST – Holding The High Line presents the second episode of Memories From Toronto: The Story of the 2010 Colorado Rapids. On this installment, we speak to right back Kosuke Kimura. We discuss how he came to America, the positional significance of him wearing #27, his friendship with Omar Cummings, and that 2010 season that saw him playing two positions down a man in extra time of MLS Cup. Also, we get to that bottom of the rumor that he and Quincy Amarikwa bought a boat and kept it at DICK’s Sporting Goods Park.

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.
