PawedCast Episode 19: Colorado Rapids & Columbus Crew Review / Real Salt Lake Preview

We look back at last week's 2-0 win vs. Colorado and this week's 2-0 U.S. Open Cup victory over Columbus Crew. RSL Soapbox gives us insight into this week's opponent, Real Salt Lake. And we discussed Chicharito, who we probably jinxed since he got hurt.

When will the madness end? We've got so many fixtures and so little time to talk about them. This week, Kevin and I recapped the 2-0 win over Colorado Rapids last week and the 2-0 win in U.S. Open Cup play over Columbus Crew SC earlier this week.

We give you our Orlando City Man of the Match for both games and discuss what went well for the lads in purple during this recent home stand. Hint: we both think Carlos Rivas had a pretty good week. And is the Citrus Bowl becoming a fortress?

Somehow we roped RSL Soapbox Managing Editor Matt Montgomery into being on the show and giving us the lowdown on what to expect Saturday night at Rio Tinto when the Lions take on Real Salt Lake. RSL is going to be missing star players Nick Rimando and Kyle Beckerman, but they've got other weapons and Rio Tinto is a tough place to play. We appreciate Matt's insight into the team.

After a little RSL discussion, we also talked about the possibility of adding Mexican striker Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez in the upcoming transfer window. Please note this was recorded before we learned of Hernandez's injury.

And, of course, we give you our soon-to-be-ridiculed score predictions.

Here's how it happened:

0:26- Kevin and I get into the meat of what happened against Colorado and Columbus and we both liked what we saw. Plus, the Citrus Bowl is a purple fortress!

28:17- Matt Montgomery jumps on and very articulately explains all we need to know about RSL, and he offers his score prediction.

50:03- A little more RSL preview, plus a side trip into Chicharito discussion. Plus, predictions!

That wraps up this week's show. Tune in next time for our recap of the Lions' trip to Salt Lake City.
