Rising as One – Episode 33 – Playoffs?!? Yes, We’re Talking About Playoffs

The gang’s all here in this packed episode.

We start with some brief rant about the USMNT’s epic failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup (3′). Then things get brighter with our recap of Phoenix’s 4-1 win over Timbers II (12′). We also preview Saturday’s playoff match at Swope Park (22′), and go through USL scores and final standings (27′).

Then we dive into some deep USL Playoff talk (33′). Dominic thinks a #1 seed will lose this weekend, and isn’t feeling great about that pepper challenge with a San Antonio fan. Jeff and Matt are bullish on Phoenix’s chances, and everyone wants to see San Antonio-Reno in the second round.

Team news comes at 57′, and then finish by giving out awards in The Risers, our Phoenix Rising version of the Dundees (65′). We actually disagreed on most categories, so you’ll want to listen & take sides. Enjoy this episode!
