    I am John Doe.

    I am not John Doe. You are John Doe.

    I’m glad you guys picked up a sponsor but I couldn’t believe that was a real movie while listening to the podcast. I laugh every time I hear it, but the video trailer makes it seem better.

        Well, I read it.

        It makes some good points around the edges of the league (fishy Dempsry signing, dumb europhile team names). But I agree that it does bash MLS just for the sake of it.

        The trolls have been fed.

    Great show! You have talked about more interviews and I thoght for the weekly preview show you might look at interviewing a young up and coming player from one of the 5 games you are going to discuss. younger players might be awake at the hours you guys do the shows or more avaliable than the Henry’s and Defoe’s of the league.

    Thanks for outing Ives’ true drinking preferences, Garrett. I knew Ives was a Cosmo gal at heart.

    A few points:

    1 – Jive scene is the best scene in Airplane, good job Ives

    2 – Can’t wait for the SBI Film Critique podcast.

    3 – I’m taking FCD as darkhorse to win the MLS Cup…being a fan notwithstanding, we have a young and hungry squad with depth from a lot of young guys and a manager who’s made a career out of turning academy players into pros that can make an immediate impact. We face a lot of competition though, this season may well be the tightest race we’ve seen yet.
