Peg Them Back
The MLS Cup Playoffs, presented by AT&T, are in full swing, so let's just get into it. But first the guys turn their attention to the away-goals rule. Good? Bad? Indifferent? All of the above?
Out West, it remains tight, with two draws in the opening conference semifinals. Seattle looks to be in position to advance at home, while neither LA or Real Salt Lake are in the drivers seat. But why was the game in Dallas ugly? Why couldn't RSL beat Jaime Penedo? Why is Simon eating an apple?
The Eastern Conference is a little clearer, with New England snatching four away goals and New York smacking D.C. United at home to send the series back to RFK Stadium. Peguy Luyindula is the man of the hour for the Red Bulls, and he joins to talk life in Brooklyn, arguing with Thierry Henry and his role on a team that's all of a sudden rolling at the right time.

ExtraTime Radio Book Club:
If you thought you knew everything there was to know about the 2014 World Cup, think again. Author James Montague dug up the stories you likely never heard about in the lead-up to Brazil 2014 in "Thirty-One Nil." We spoke to Montague about his adventures around the world and if you haven't yet ordered the book, you'll likely be tempted to after listening to our special Book Club edition.
Meanwhile, get started on the book club's next selection: The Numbers Game by Chris Anderson and David Sally (see left).
