This past Sunday I was asked to participate on a podcast that is given three times a month on AMDG Radio titled “The Beautiful Game”. A big thanks to the Cross Island Crew for giving me the opportunity to do this. I was a bit nervous at the beginning of the podcast but after a minute or so it became fun and to be honest, I didn’t want it to end. The podcast itself talks about the US Soccer landscape and typically includes conversations about the US National Team, MLS and the NASL. One of the things that differentiates this podcast from others is that they try to educate the listeners and not assume that every listener is a long time soccer fan. Kudos to them for doing this. With soccer’s growing popularity in the US, there will likely be new fans of the game that won’t be able to know everything there is to know about soccer in the US. The fact that he was willing to have the Cosmos as a topic of conversation on his show to me is great for a fan under 30 years old that would likely have no appreciation for who the Cosmos were back in the 1970′s or 1980′s. We touched upon that topic and many more during our conversation on the show. Below is a link to Sunday’s show. I was the third guest in the podcast and followed a caller that talked about “Chivas USA” and then a second caller that talked about what’s been going on with “Toronto FC”. If you want to listen to what they discussed then feel free to listen from the beginning. However if you want to cut ahead to the quality conversation about the Boys In Green & White
then scroll ahead to the 48:55 mark into the show where our segment starts. The Cosmos conversation is close to a half hour – and I could have kept going if they let me! You will have to listen to a 30 second ad before the podcast begins – just do it..lol
Let me know your thoughts as I am looking to do more of these podcasts so long as the respective hosts of the shows would have me. Did I babble? Was I wrong on certain topics? Tone ok? Any criticism is constructive in my opinion and no offense will be taken. By all means if you thought it was ok then I’d like to know that too!
