Podcast (July 13, 2018) – Hello Rapids Fans! Holding The High Line is back to talk about Joe Mason. We apologize for not coming out with an episode until Friday of this week. Rabbi was out of town for part of this week and Red has a terrible head cold with a sore throat and sounds like death.
Holding The High Line: Joe Mason waiver and Colorado Rapids transfer window hopes
We recap the Rapids taking zero points from Seattle Sounders and Montreal Impact. Mark and Matt talk about what went wrong and what it means for the club. The guys take a look at the Houston Dynamo. Brace yourselves, it’s not good. We then go down the rabbit hole in a segment of Ask HTHL, talking about how we keep it together while following this club, the transfer window, and signing busts.
The pod closes with the guys talking about Joe Mason getting waved and the Giles Barnes rumor. We don’t pull any punches and land some pretty solid blows.
Real talk though, if you see us on Saturday, give Mark a hug and bring Matt any form of beverage with Vitamin C in it.

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.
