Episode 43: Connect Four by Cheeky Backheel published on 2013/06/20 20:43:29 +0000 No Sounders action over the weekend, but there was still plenty to talk about. The Portland Timbers ascended to the top of the MLS Power Rankings (whatever that means), the USMNT continued their march towards the World Cup with another qualifier against Honduras, and the Confederations Cup started. We preview what the Sounders could do against Real Salt Lake now that the internationals Eddie Johnson, Brad Evans, and Mario Martinez are back with the club. We also play another round of Oddsmakers where we talk about Tahiti's national team getting the Disney movie treatment and Luis Suarez actually getting what he wants and moves to Real Madrid. In their In-Direct Free Kicks, Rick talks about the YSA epidemic inflicting Salt Lake City of all places and Charlie talks about NBC Sports Network debuting a show all about the MLS and likely will be leaps & bounds better than ESPN's upcoming football show. It's Episode 43 of the podcast and look, we're doing our best of staying under an hour.
