ExtraTime Radio: Jonathan Bornstein talks living the good life in Liga MX
Jet Skis, Sushi and Honduran Vacations
After a night of midweek MLS and Amway Canadian Championship action, the gang is back together to run the rule over Seattle's comeback win against FC Dallas, Houston's grind-it-out result at home vs. Columbus and a "barren" draw in San Jose between the Earthquakes and Rapids. The big questions: Is Obafemi Martins' the best attacker in MLS right now? Is it time to worry in Crew land? And, finally, should Eddie Johnson be apologizing for anything after some pointed comments in the media?
Meanwhile, in Cancun, Atlante's Jonathan Bornstein is living the good life. The hero of the Honduran people takes a break from being a beach bum to discuss his career in Mexico, battles to learn Spanish, advice for Americans considering Liga MX and dealing with spring breakers. Plus, what's next for the versatile American? Could it be a return to MLS? Bornstein's still figuring that out.
Finally, the ExtraTime Radio Book Club is back in business (see below) and we have the books in hand. Listeners also suggest second-division Hungarian teams for Simon to follow and the guys throw out some fantasy MLS transfers (vote in the poll to the right).
