Podcast – Hello Rapids Fans! Today, we talk about the Colorado Rapids big win over Toronto FC from the weekend. We do a full Good Thing, Bad Thing, Big Thing on the match. Then we dive into the Rocky Mountain Cup, previewing what’s wrong with Real Salt Lake in 2018, and how the Rapids could actually get their first win at Rio Tinto Stadium ever.
Holding The High Line: Rocky Mountain Cup Preview
Then we get into segments of From Field 20 and #AskHTHL with a full update from Mark and a post-training sitdown with Shkelzen Gashi.
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.
