It has been scientifically proven that losing is much worse than winning or even tying. Yet, here we are with Orlando City on a 0-3-3 skid in the last six matches and we may have (hopefully) seen the nadir with Sunday's abysmal performance at Children's Mercy Park in Kansas City. Despite a 2-1 score line, the Lions were completely pummeled by Sporting Kansas City, yielding 34 shots and failing to record even one shot on goal.

But, we're here to talk you down from the ledge and to try to make sense of what we saw on Sunday. Mostly we saw a lot of Joe Bendik making saves. There were defensive problems, a lack of any attacking bite, and almost no link between the levels in the formation. We remain hopeful that the end of this skid is in sight.

On the other hand, the Pride is now a perfect 3-0 at home, outscoring opponents 6-1 after a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Western New York Flash at Camping World Stadium on Saturday. We'll review that game and Pride midfielder/forward Jasmyne Spencer stops by to talk about the fans, the winning, the road losses, and much more. Big thanks to Spencer, who has been one of the real bright spots for the Pride this season.
