Jesse Lund of Twinkie Town stopped by for Episode 70 of the podcast.
Then, on Episode 71, we recorded a two-part Vikings preview.
Podcasts: like blog posts for your ears.
Minneapolis native Akale, who signed with Villareal earlier this year, was named Player of the Tournament and scored the only goal in the championship game.
Minnesota had a man advantage for all but the first few minutes of the game, yet were dominated by the New York Cosmos, who was unlucky not to come away with a win instead of a 1-1 draw.
Local Gopher football expert / Minnesota sports cynic / brother Dave Marthaler was back on the podcast this week. We talked Gopher football for an hour. This, after I’d failed to record about half an hour of talking.
This week on the podcast, old friends Michael Rand and Rocket stopped by Sportive HQ. Brandon was there. Stu showed up too. Eventually we had five people around the table, a new record; only Clarence missed out. We recorded a podcast while we were there.
