Holding The High Line, a Colorado Rapids Podcast

S3E30: Collaborate Destruction

July 18, 2020

Ughhh. Hey Colorado Rapids Fans. On this episode of Holding The High Line, Rabbi and Red get together the day after the 9-man Rapids lost to Sporting KC in MiB. We do Good Thing, Bad Thing, Big Thing on the match. We go in depth on referee David Gantar's decisions on Nicolas Benezet's elbow, the two red cards, the PK, and the Alan Pulido yellow card. Then we look ahead to the Minnesota United game or rather what has to happen for the Rapids to make the knockout stage as a best third team. In short, it's complicated and not likely.

It's the hope that kills you.

During the intro banter, we discuss Andre Schurrle retiring and the wonderful story arc of Adebayo Akinfenwa. For more info on Schurrle, click here and here. For more info on Akinfenwa, check out his twitter, this story, and this story. There's also this interviewthis one, and this video.

Also during the podcast, we reference incidents where players were given red cards for confronting officials. Find the Brek Shea video here and the Philadelphia Union video here.
