Podcast (November 7, 2018) – Hello Rapids Fans! This week on Holding The High Line with Rabbi and Red, we bury the 2018 Colorado Rapids season for good. We recap the entire year, from January transfer moves to the various chunks of the season, and try not to get too bogged down on Doom Part I and Doom Part II. Also, we go overboard on the Dad Jokes. Apologies. We look forward to next week, where we’ll be doing positional grades as we turn the page to Season 2 of the podcast. Thank you all for your listenership and support for us in Season 1.

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.
