ExtraTime Radio: Third Rail President Chance Michaels (NYCFC), Kristy Olychick (Vancouver Bird Flipper)
Andrew, Simon, and David preview the weekend with the people that matter most: the fans! Third Rail president Chance Michaels calls in from work to serenade Simon with some NYCFC chants and explain what’s on tap for Sunday. The guys also break down the match vs. New England, and give their takes on Portland and Orlando’s center-forward conundrums.
Not to be outdone by their Eastern Conference brethren, a member of Vancouver Whitecaps supporters group “The Southsiders” stops by to preview their matchup. But it’s not just any member, it’s Kristy Olychick, who flipped the bird in Jozy Altidore’s face last weekend, a gesture felt around MLS. The guys finish up by breaking down the rest of the weekend’s games, then debate who got the toughest Gold Cup group.
In the mailbag, the legal battle begins as an ETR fan/attorney chimes in about Simon’s copyright claim to the “ScoreBorg” (not like it’s every going to happen anyway). Finally, the guys consider what kind of ETR memorabilia might take the marketplace by storm.
