Holding The High Line: Rapids Draw Seattle

Rapids draw Seattle

PODCAST – Holding The High Line reviews the draw against Seattle Sounders and looks ahead to Houston Dynamo on Saturday. We also talk about Rapids 2 in the Open Cup against Azteca FC and have an Ask HTHL on thirst traps.

What are Djordjo Mihailovic and Rafael Navarro doing well and what has to get better in the press and the attack? What can Moise Bombito do for Colorado this year as he keeps other center backs from starting? Also he’s getting called up for Canada. How good were Cole Bassett and Oli Larraz in midfield and what else could Chris Armas do at the No. 6 position?

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.
