ExtraTime Radio: ESPN analyst Taylor Twellman breaks down SuperDraft Day delirium in Philadelphia

Draft Day Delirium

What's left to discuss about the MLS SuperDraft? Plenty. The guys call up ESPN analyst and former No. 2 draft pick Taylor Twellman to assess this year's class, top pick Andre Blake and which teams won out on a draft day full of last-second trades and plenty of drama. Plus, Twellman recounts the time MLS coaching legend Sigi Schmid tried to help him tank the MLS Combine so he would end up with the LA Galaxy.

The guys also try to make sense of the latest news surrounding the MLS return of Maurice Edu, Camilo Sanvezzo's hasty exit from Vancouver, the Portland Timbers' latest signings and Jurgen Klinsmann's idea the US national team might benefit from the chaos of CONCACAF when the World Cup kicks off this summer in Brazil.

The guys also offer up their favorite cop shows of all time (does Moonlighting count?), Greg takes some heat for a musical misstep on a recent show and Andrew offers himself up for a visit to Rocklahoma, the annual summertime hard rock and hair metal extravanga in tornado alley.
