ExtraTime Radio: FC Dallas' Tesho Akindele talks Canada future, Crew's Gregg Berhalter on Mix Diskerud

Super Smash Brothers

It was the game that got everyone talking in Week 23, and Columbus Crew head coach Gregg Berhalter joins the guys to reveal why he was intent on honoring Landon Donovan, why Wil Trapp still has plenty to learn and why that Mix Diskerud deal is dead for now but maybe not forever. Plus, does Seattle need a mentality change? Simon Borg is back and he's already riling up Sounders fans.

The Maltese Falcon has nothing but good things to say about FC Dallas and Tesho Akindele, though. The Colorado School of Mines product -- he would be designing power grids right now if he wasn't playing soccer -- says he's trying to find a signature celebration and claims nobody can touch him in Super Smash Brothers on Nintendo 64. In case you're curious, his character is Pikachu.
