Camps are open and preseason is in full swing. Didier Drogba isn’t with the Impact just yet, but his future has been resolved. Or has it? RDS’ Pat Leduc joins the guys to explain why the relationship between the Ivorian and Montreal owner Joey Saputo has lost some luster, then addresses rumors that Drogba won’t be around for a full MLS season. Plus, what is preseason like for the players?

For many, training camp means fitness, and Sporting Kansas City’s head fitness coach Mateus Manoel joins the guys to explain how he gets his charges ready for a long MLS campaign, why the beep test is important and how yoga (of course) can be a good and bad thing for soccer players. Players want to play and scrimmages begin soon, often against college competition. Florida Gulf Coast takes on New York City FC this weekend, and head coach Bob Butehorn says his guys are pumped up about it.

In the mailbag, a listener warns Andrew about the hygiene risks that come with hot yoga and supporters wonder whether they should change where their fandom lies.
