The SBI Show: Episode 243 (Talking MLS playoffs, USMNT and more)

Timbers Celebrate FC Dallas 11252015

The Portland Timbers and Columbus Crew made big statements with first-leg victories in the MLS conference finals, and are threatening to shake up these MLS playoffs in a way few could have expected.

Episode 243 of The SBI Show looks back at the wins by Portland and Columbus, and break down what went wrong for the Red Bulls and FC Dallas.

Co-host Garrett Cleverly and I also look back at the U.S. Men’s National Team’s 0-0 tie against Trinidad and Tobago, and which players impressed, and which players struggled.

We also touch on the latest NASL news, and catch up on the NCAA tournament, and the latest from Europe.

  1. Ives, did Tex Hooper eyef*ck your wife at a game or something? Can’t wait for you to turn the corner and give up your hatred of Dallas, it’s starting to give you crow’s feet…and an ulcer…and club foot.

    • Haha. No Hatred of FC Dallas my man. Just like Portland’s chances. They’re a tough matchup. That late goal makes things VERY tough. If they prove me wrong then so be it, but calling it “hate” is a stretch.

  2. Great show! Ives had a couple classic soapbox moments and they covered a lot of ground with good depth. I love how established the dynamics of the show have become. We can always expect at least one rant from Ives, and we can always expect Ives to shut down Garrett’s rants before they really get going. Haha.

    I think you do a good job Garrett, but I hope Ives keeps raining on your parade because it’s funny.

    I also like how Garrett tries to sarcastically say some hyperbole (obviously imitating how he views some USMNT fan’s opinions) but Ives rarely picks up on the fact that Garrett isn’t being genuine, and shuts him down there too.
