Remembering first El Trafico, LAFC & LA Galaxy Mount Rushmores, plus Dr. Robbie Russell joins | Extratime

It’s an all-LA day for the ETR squad from Galaxy legends to the anniversary of the inaugural “El Trafico.” First, the guys come together along with all of #MLSUnites to thank medical professionals around the world. That includes former MLS Cup champion Robbie Russell, who is now an ER doctor in Virginia and checks in with the guys to discuss his experience right now.

Then the guys celebrate THAT Zlatan goal with Steven Beitashour, who had the perfect view (just on the wrong team). Beitashour walks you through the buildup to that game, the legacy of the rivalry, and where his career stands now. Finally, the guys choose LAFC's best-ever side, and debate the Mount Rushmore of the LA Galaxy but are forced to leave the deciding vote to you. Don’t forget we are going to hit every club’s history! Coming up on Thursday are Atlanta United, Real Salt Lake and the Vancouver Whitecaps.

Major League Soccer's long-running podcast Extratime is available on YouTube.
