Podcast (January 10, 2019) – Hello Rapids Fans! This week on Holding The High Line with Rabbi and Red, it’s draft week! Mark and Matt take a look at the 2019 MLS SuperDraft in a Rapids context and in general. We talk draft stock and combine hype. Andre Shinyashiki comes up more than once and we give our takes of who the Rapids could be eyeing as part of our Colorado Rapids SuperDraft preview.
Holding The High Line: Colorado Rapids SuperDraft Preview
Rabbi gives us the lowdown on a potential Homegrown signing that may be in the works. We go a bit off the road with an Ask HTHL, discussing locker room chemistry and leaders who are gatherers.
Oh, and Mark saved a bunch of money on Liga MX jersey so he could make it rain when he hung out with the narcos in Mexico two weeks ago. And because of that, we now have to be rivals cause Tigres and Monterrey don’t get along.

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 his son’s U-8 team, he’s generally studying either Talmud or medieval biblical exegesis. Which explains why he watches so much MLS, probably. He covers the Pittsburgh Riverhounds of the USL for Pittsburgh Soccer Now. He also writes for American Soccer Analysis.
