Podcast: Colorado Rapids Open Cup Loss
This week on Holding The High Line, we banter about the Open Cup and end of (most of) the league seasons in Europa. The boys recap the Rapids Open Cup loss and the storm that was FC Cincinnati on Saturday. Red explains why he did not even watch the RSL Open Cup match. We give Dom Badji his due and make sense of a fifth loss in a row. Then we look ahead to two tough games this week, including Rabbi going to the Columbus game. There's an Ask HTHL about Max's absence and its significance in the downturn in form.
Shout out High Liner Jesus and his son, by the way.
During the show, we discuss this Keegan Rosenberry quote, the club's mental health journey initiative, and Matt's submission to that program.
