Holding The High Line: Timbers Rapids Preview

timbers rapids preview

PODCAST – This week on HTHL, we do a full Timbers Rapids preview, discuss national pundits being down on the Burgundy Boys, banter about the new kit and Scabby The Ref. Also Red discusses his observations from Rapids training on Tuesday. Are we too optimistic on this season? What does a Chris Armas training session look like? How important is the season opener given how tough the next six games are? Rabbi and Red discuss these questions and more.

If you like what you heard, we’ve made several guest appearances on other programs. Check out The Designated Players, MLS Fantasy Insider, Box State Footy, and Last Word SC Radio.

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.
