Podcast (February 8, 2019) – Happy Podiversary Rapids Fans! It’s been just over a year since Matt and Mark made the hubristic decision to start this covfefe of a podcast! We’ve had a blast and we thank all of you for listening and engaging with us about the Colorado Rapids. This week on Holding The High Like, Rabbi and Red talk all things Colorado Rapids preseason.
Holding The High Line Podcast: Colorado Rapids Preseason
The guys discuss why MLS doesn’t make preseason games more accessible or put out content during preseason. We try to recap the 1-0 loss to FC Cincinnati. Matt gives a rundown of the injuries the team is currently dealing with and who is still in camp. Mark is paying attention to but not worried about needing two extra international slots. Oh, and like you, we can’t wait for the regular season to kick off.
This week we’ve also got a full slate of #AskHTHL. The guys break down off-season signings, Head Coach Anthony Hudson in year two, and what direction the club is heading in going into 2019.

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.
