Podcast (February 14, 2018) – Hello Rapids Fans! This week on Holding The High Line, Mark and Matt have CCL Fever and the only cure is doing a podcast! The guys start off with some Rapid Fire news topics from the past week, then dive into all things CONCACAF Champions League. The Colorado Rapids are hosting Toronto FC on Tuesday at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.
Holding The High Line with Rabbi and Red Episode 3: CCL Fever
Rabbi and Red discuss what exactly a 5-3-2 vs. 5-3-2 would look like. We discuss key match ups on the field and how the Toronto Manager Greg Vanney might change things up. We discuss x-factors for Leg One. The guys go back and forth about who is in their Rapids Starting XI for Tuesday and how it could be a interesting game of cat and mouse, especially after halftime. We finish with some not so optimistic predictions for Tuesday night’s affair.
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. It is hosted by Mark Goodman of Burgundy Wave and Matt Pollard from Last Word on Soccer.
