Welcome back! On the hottest day of the year so far, Steve and Tim bid a warm and sticky welcome to new cast member Andrew Hammond! https://twitter.com/AHammTNT! We chat about the draw v. Minnesota, make strong Muppet comparisons, look ahead to Houston at home, and chat about UEFA Champions League by way of listerner questions!
Oh, and we seriously over-analyze the implications of signing Joevin Jones and Xavier Arreaga (who Steve keeps calling Aguerra).
We unpack the stunning streak of success the Sounders have seen to start the season, and look forward to changes — probably a little later than we might like (we are impatient) but definitely some interesting moves. USOC, Defiance, some acquisition strategy leading to the summer window, and what we should expect to see coming into this 8-day 3-match stretch, away & home v LAFC bracketing a “rivalry” match v. the Earthquakes at home.
Listen to the show to find out how to get some signed Torres gear! It’s super easy if you’re a Tacoman!
