ExtraTime Radio: Full recap of Week 1, plus Bobby Warshaw on his defense of MLS

First Impressions

The first week of the MLS regular season is in the books, and the guys are ready to break it all down. Which team was the most impressive out of the gate? Who disappointed? What was the biggest storyline of the weekend?

The guys are also joined from Sweden by former MLSer Bobby Warshaw, who last week penned an article for Deadspin.com articulating his thoughts on MLS today and all the oddities that make the league unique. He offers his thoughts on what motivated him to write the article and he shines a light into the locker rooms of MLS and what players are talking about: paychecks, international signings and those crazy headlines in the media.
