In this episode, Andrew Wiebe, David Gass, Bobby Warshaw and Susannah Collins give two US soccer legends their due.
First up, Seattle Sounders defender Chad Marshall. The three-time Defender of the Year hung up his boots midseason, but not before winning everything there is to win in MLS and inspiring a young Bobby to go to Stanford. Then it’s time to remember Run DMB. DaMarcus Beasley did his thing for 20 years and he’s still got six months to go. The crew explains how a kid from Fort Wayne, Ind., made it and how he inspired thousands in the process.
