Don't Call It Porterball!
With the Portland Timbers riding a 10-game unbeaten streak into a weekend matchup at D.C. United, the guys catch up with hard-working midfielder Will Johnson to talk about which players influenced his game, how his Timbers career differs from his days at Real Salt Lake and if there really is anything to the idea of Porterball.
The guys also usher in a new era of MLS in New York City with New York Times writer Jack Bell, who talks about the chances that the new club will play at Yankee Stadium, whether Claudio Reyna can really run the show and where all this leaves the Red Bulls.
