The Far Post
Weeeeeee're baaaaaaack! The team has returned from Arizona and is making final preparations for the start of the 2013 MLS season. This also means we're back in the studio each week for an all-new Far Post Podcast, starting today. I know, I know - we missed you, too.
Today was that magical day where the entire team has promotional photos and head shots taken for the 2013 season. Needless to say, there's some characters on this squad. Photos by David Silverman.
It's been real, it's been fun and it's been slightly off-topic (but better than last year) - but the Far Post Podcast is done for 2012. Thanks to everyone who listened, and we'll see you in 2013. Happy Holidays!
Today we cover a wide range of topics including the trade of Benny Feilhaber and what this means for the Revs (Cathal's rant on this subject is excellent) and also bust out a little Journey. That's right, Journey. And when you get to the part about Nate Jaqua taking out Joe Franchino six years ago, this is what I was talking about.
There have been a lot of questions and comments around the Revs' decision to decline the options of several players, including midfielder Benny Feilhaber. Jeff Lemieux gives a pretty solid explanation of everything that goes into a team decision on a player's contract and more in this week's podcast.
I could write a witty little blurb about today's podcast in this space, but I think I'll just let the audio speak for itself today. Have a good weekend and Thanksgiving Holiday, everyone!
