Podcast – Hello Rapids Fans! Today, Red sits down for a special and slightly off-topic Johan Blomberg interview. We talk about playing in Sweden, what it was like playing for AIK, his first impressions of Major League Soccer, and much more. We also have some fun similar to the Enzo Martinez interview last week, talking about skiing, Zlatan, and what weapon he would take into battle to defend Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.
Episode 12: Surprise Johan Blomberg Interview!
Listen to this for your Friday commute or on the way to the stadium for Saturday’s match against Toronto FC. Hit up the Centennial 38 tailgate for HTHL Office Hours. Rabbi and Red will be there from 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM.
Holding The High Line with Rabbi and Red is a soccer podcast centered around the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer. The show aims to provide analysis based coverage and commentary of the Pids and have some fun while doing so. We record weekly-ish.
Matt Pollard is the Managing Editor of Last Word on Soccer and engineer by day. A Colorado Convert, he started covering the Colorado Rapids as a credentialed member of the press in 2016, though he’s watched MLS since it started. When he’s not watching or writing about soccer, he’s being an outdoorsman (mostly skiing and hiking) in this beautiful state, trying a new beer, or traveling for work. For some reason, he thought that starting a podcast with Mark was a good idea and he can’t figure out how to stop this madness. He also hosts Last Word SC Radio.

Mark Goodman, aka the Rapids Rabbi, moved to Colorado in 2011. Shortly thereafter he went to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, saw Lee Nguyen dribble a ball with the silky smoothness of liquid chocolate cascading into a Bar Mitzvah fountain, and promptly fell head over heels in love with domestic soccer. When not watching MLS or coaching U8 soccer, he’s generally studying either Talmud or medieval biblical exegesis. Which explains why he watches so much MLS, probably. He writes about the Rapids for Around MLS and covers the Pittsburgh Riverhounds of the USL for Last Word on Soccer. He also writes for American Soccer Analysis. Follow him on Twitter @rapidsrabbi.
