Stay tuned for a #PlayYourKids conversation with Sam "Sam on TAM" Stejskal before finishing up by predicting which MLS teams have the best chance to advance in the CONCACAF Champions League.

ExtraTime Radio brings you exclusive interviews with Toronto FC's Greg Vanney and the Colorado Rapids' Anthony Hudson, who'll face off in just 12 days in the only MLS vs. MLS matchup in the CONCACAF Champions League Round of 16!

Vanney is up first, explaining how the Reds build a juggernaut, what the treble means to the club and the league, how they plan on getting over the Liga MX hump in CCL plus the fallout from Trinidad & Tobago and how Jozy Altidore and Michael Bradley required different management techniques.

Next, Hudson introduces himself to MLS fans. How did his famous father's influence (and shadow) shape his childhood and playing career? Once he hung up his boots, who did he lean on to learn a new craft? How did he end up in Marcelo Bielsa's barn talking soccer for hours? How does he plan on making the Rapids a playoff contender?
