PODCAST – Hello Rapids fans. This week on Holding The High Line, Rapids Twitter has had itself a few days. Rabbi and Red spend as little time as possible discussing that loss to Toluca. We analyze the end of the transfer window with Rafael Navarro’s late arrival, the departures of Bryan Acosta and Anthony Markanich, and probably Sidnei Tavares. The guys discuss what the rest of the season could look like now that the Pids are out of Leagues Cup. Our expectations are low. Then we discuss the state of media coverage of the Rapids as that seemed to be what the Rapids Community talked about this week. Are Matt and Mark members of No One Good FC?

Matt Pollard is an editor for 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 soccer 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. Having relocated to Pittsburgh in 2017, he covers the Pittsburgh Riverhounds of the USL for Pittsburgh Soccer Now.
