Holding The High Line: Rapids Home Opener Preview

rapids home opener

PODCAST – Hello Colorado Rapids fans. Rabbi and Red banter about Don Garber saying reporters are lazy for only covering Messi, discuss the shock 4-1 loss at Portland Timbers, then look ahead to Nashville in the Rapids home opener. Then we feature Red’s guest spot on fellow Bleav network podcast, Urban Pitch. Was Saturday night just one game, are the issues fixable, or is this an omen that feels all too familiar? We try to make sense of how all the good vibes around the club got taken to the woodshed 30 minutes into the first game of the season.

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.
