ExtraTime Radio: Kelyn Rowe and the New England Revolution are all smiles...for now
A Sight For Sore Eyes
Check out the Eastern Conference standings with one week left to go in the regular season and you'll see an MLS original that hasn't been in this spot since 2009: The New England Revolution. Star midfielder Kelyn Rowe joins the guys on the latest episode to talk about how the team got to the brink of the postseason, what they expect out of the season finale and if he used a snub on MLSsoccer.com's 24 Under 24 series as motivation.
The guys also hash out a wild playoff picture in the Western Conference, where one of the few teams who had a statement result in Week 34 was actually the Seattle Sounders, who continued their dramatic slide. Seattle Times writer Joshua Mayers comes on to talk about where it's all gone wrong for the Sounders and what lies ahead for head coach Sigi Schmid.
Listeners also sound off on Simon's comments about the US-Panama result, the integrity of the Supporters' Shield and which 1980's TV sitcoms make them feel despressed. Andrew also disappionts the crew by not being mugged while in Panama.
