We’re back after a long hiatus. 40 days wasn’t enough for us. We went away into the desert for 6 months, and we’re hungry to talk sports again.  Fr. Kyle (@colonel4God) and Zach (@beggarsson) talk the beginning of the MLS season with transfers, the first weekend, and our predictions for who goes into the playoffs.

Fr. Kyle and Zach spend Sunday afternoon talking about FIFA corruption and the upcoming Women’s World Cup, wherein the US will reclaim the throne supplanting all other teams becoming the true queens of soccer. In other words, it’s another season of Game of Thrones without all of the bloodshed.

5. Poor transfer decisions
Mario Balotelli (I tried to get a news article but there was anything to pull …)
Radamel Falcao
Angel Di Maria

4. David de Gea (around min: 3:30 and then at 12:40 is the save against Everton we mentioned.)

3. Chelsea Dominance and Man City mediocrity

2. the Louis van Gaal lesson in English as a second language

1. Stevie G (be prepared to cry)

Unfortunately, Zach wasn’t able to couple the soccer talking duo, so Fr. Kyle found ample replacement in seminarian Colm Cahill from the Archdiocese of New Orleans. Colm’s family has Celtic Football Club in their blood. He shares about the history of Celtic and its importance to the community of Glasgow and around the world.
