S2 E32: The Curse of Lew Wallace

Hello Colorado Rapids Fans! This week on Holding The High Line with Rabbi and Red, the Pids aren’t bottom in the Western Conference? The Pids aren’t bottom in the Western Conference! The guys wax poetic about the magic of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Mark refuses to discuss the USMNT because we’re living our best lives and don’t need that negativity. We’ve also got some New Mexico United talk as well.

The guys do Good Thing, Bad Thing, Big Thing on the win over Minnesota United FC. It’s not all roses, but we think that’s ok. Then David Carl, President of The Curse Supporters Group and host of the CurseCast joins us for a USOC Know Thy Enemy. Matt and David talk Albuquerque soccer culture, NMU in their expansion season, and Sam Hamilton. If you haven’t watched much USL this year, here’s everything you need to know about Colorado’s USOC opponent.
