ExtraTimeRadio: Mayor of Hannover Steve Cherundolo on USMNT, plus MLS weekend preview

The Mayor Speaks

With the first of the United States national team's Send Off Series in the books, the diamond formation is broken down and Turkey becomes the next target. The guys also welcome the Mayor of Hannover, Steve Cherundolo, to talk like in Germany, his quest to become a coach, Jurgen Klinsmann's Bundesliga recruits and his former teammates' chances in Brazil.

Meanwhile, the domestic game isn't slowing down either, with MLS teams learning their CONCACAF Champions League and US Open Cup fates. Who's got it easy? The guys take their pick. Plus, Cascadia dominates another intriguing MLS weekend. Which game (or games) should you invest your time in?
