Show Notes

Hello Colorado Rapids fans! This week on Holding The High Line, Rabbi is rejoicing, for Rapids Twitter has reasonable and valid expectations. The guys touch base on all the U.S. Soccer news. We recap the draw to Vancouver Whitecaps FC with Good Thing, Bad Thing, Big Thing. Then we preview Friday’s match against Juggernaut Doom United, we mean Los Angeles FC. Mark talks about the depth and tactical shape of the team while Matt tries to tangibly describe what makes Carlos Vela so good. Then we talk about the Tim Howard All-Star Game snub, or was it?

We finish the show an Ask HTHL discussing that interim tag on Conor Casey’s job title.
