Podcast (May 31, 2018) – Hello Rapids fans! Today on Holding The High Line, Rabbi and Red are back to talk about another disappointing loss to the Portland Timbers. We skip the sad details and go straight to big takeaways from the match. The guys then turn to the Vancouver Whitecaps, who are inconsistent, defensive, and have issues with possession. Sound familiar?
Holding The High Line: MLS Losing Streak Record
Mark and Matt provide some abbreviated notes in ‘From Field 20,’ talking about weekly scheduling and injuries.
The guys finish diving into the stats book as Matt talks about some rather sad Colorado Rapids and MLS records to be in the conversation with, including the all-time MLS losing streak record.

Matt Pollard is the Managing Editor of Last Word on Soccer and an 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 or trying a new beer. 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.
