League One Fun – Episode 38: Everything’s Coming Up Westen

Ira continues to live his life vicariously through Jason who may be watching Hertha Berlin – or maybe is just enjoying Berlin’s nightlife. Luckily Westen Shelton from the Capital Combustion podcast (@capcombustion) is watching all the games because of the impact on Lansing’s playoff chances and jumps on the pod.

They send out thoughts and prayers to Lucas Coutinho and his family, and applaud the way the Tormenta owners have kept all soccer fans informed.

In soccer action, Westen and Ira discuss playoff implications quite a lot – especially given the weeks results during their review of all the week’s action.

Loads of listener questions on playoffs, the best “lines” in the league (Westen and Ira mostly agree), who should pay for a beer when dumped by an errant shot during warm ups, and what teams look to maybe be out of the playoff hunt.

The show can be found at @league1fun on twitter, Jason is @homesweetsoccer and Ira is @irajersey.
