Podcast (September 27, 2018) – Hello Rapids Fans! This week on Holding The High Line, Rabbi is back from Yom Kippur international duty. The guys recap Colorado Rapids losing to Columbus Crew SC over the weekend. We lament the possession without a purpose and the lack of offensive threats. Mark hijacks the podcast to ask a bunch of his own questions regarding major decisions the club needs to make this off-season.
Holding The High Line: Colorado Rapids losing again
We then preview Saturday’s match against the Seattle Sounder FC. Spoiler: not good fam. We then go down some rabbit holes in #AskHTHL, discussing how the Rapids got to this bad place they’re in and why all the yellow cards.
Apologies in advance for Mark throwing monkey wrenches into Matt’s plans for the show, and bringing up a certain muppet hockey mascot as well.

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 ’96. 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, the artist formally known as 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.
