We're here to sing the praises of Pedro Ribeiro. Actually, we're here to break down the 2-2 draw against Columbus Crew, as well as look ahead to Saturday's match-up with the Chicago Fire. Joining us to talk about the Fire and what they bring to the table is Sean Spence, the editor-in-chief of Hot Time in Old Town, our SB Nation sister blog that covers Chicago on a daily basis.

We also get into the big stadium news that Orlando City dropped on Friday about privately funding a bigger downtown soccer-specific stadium than was originally planned. They say "bigger is better" and it sure will be when the new home of the Lions is unveiled some time next summer.

And would you believe that we had this entire conversation without once saying anything bad about our opponents' fans? Well, we did.

Here's how this episode of the PawedCast went down (and you can subscribe to us on iTunes and/or Stitcher):

0:26- Me, Austin David and Andrew Harrison discuss the change of direction for the downtown stadium and we break down the crew and look ahead to potential lineup changes at Chicago. Also, Pedro Ribeiro is good at kicking soccer balls.

29:29- Sean Spence hops aboard to tell us why we should fear Harry Shipp, David Accam and company. His breakdown of his team will give you all the background info on the Fire that you need.

49:30- It's prediction time, and you know darn well we're going to be wrong.

That's it for this week.
