Soccer’s Being Played

Finally, the duo finish the show previewing the season’s first full slate weekend. Ira believes Greenville is a lock, Jason expects Tucson and Fort Lauderdale to be the most entertaining game of the weekend, and both agree that Tormenta and Chattanooga could supply the most goals of the weekend.
