S2 Ep 17: So many good things!

Hello Rapids Fans! This week on Holding The High Line, we have good things to talk about! So many good things. We begin by discussing Shklenzen Gashi’s departure from the club then do a comprehensive review of Snow Clasico 3, the Colorado Rapids 3-3 draw against Portland Timbers. The guys talk about all the snow! We discuss new players playing well and scoring goals. We talk tactics and what still needs to be worked on. Then Mark asks Matt to wax poetic about losing his laptop limbs to frostbite.

Then we get into a full preview of the match this weekend against Seattle Sounders FC. Red sits down with Ari Liljenwall of MLSSoccer.com to discuss all things Rave Green. Rabbi discusses the tactics and why this game will be a tough one.

We finish off with a full slate of Ask HTHL. This is a long one, but we just had so much to say about one of the most memorable Rapids games in recent memory.
