We try to laugh through the pain of watching the last two USMNT World Cup Qualifier matches. A great beer from Toppling Goliath Brewing Company in partnership with The Field Museum in Chicago helps us along with that. Ron shares some news from the craft beer world, and Ferris gets feisty discussing Orlando City SC's recent 0-4 drubbing the faced at the hand of New England. Blake is just happy we aren't talking about Arsenal.
In this episode, we talk the recent World Cup Qualifying matches that the US Men's National Team took part it. After covering what we think of Bruce Arena's newly revived team, we cover the US Women's National Team and their friendlies played over the same weekend. There has been some manager news back in the Premier League, and since we already miss it the recently departed season, we get sucked back into the Premier League vortex.
Blake had the beer pick for the pod, and chose to go back to one of his favorite breweries. It was a refreshing twist on an IPA from 21st Amendment Brewery. The Brew Free! Or Die Blood Orange IPA turned out to be quite the group pleaser.
We sit down to celebrate a new energy at the US Men's National Soccer Team. Discussion includes the major victory against Honduras, the draw against Panama, and what we think of the return of Bruce Arena. We also cover a few of the mid week matches that happened in MLS.
Ron introduces as to a craft malt liquor beverage. You read that right. Listen to find out what we thought.
Ron was feeling under the weather, so for this Premier League episode, we are joined in the studio by our resident NWSL expert and Hull City fan, Caitlin Elliott. After talking Premier League, we also discuss some MLS news and FIFA's expansion to a 48 team World Cup.
Ferris had the beer pick this week and chose to go with a London beer in honor of a London crowded top 4 of the table. Fuller's London Pride made for a delicious pairing to this episode.
We take a look a the last two matches of the United States Women's National Team versus Romania, and the total breakdown the United States Men's National Team suffered at the hands of Mexico and Costa Rica. The men's matches were for World Cup qualifying, so let's just say, we aren't very happy in the last half of the episode.
What did make us happy was a beer Ferris introduced to us. He chose a beer in honor of the recently observed Veteran's Day. Dog Tag Brewing's Legacy Lager is a great beer with a great purpose. 100% of their profits go to Gold Star Families. Please give a visit to their website and pick up a four pack.
