PawedCast Episode 90: Brad Rusin Interview, International Break, U.S. Open Cup, Pride, and Montreal Preview

We talk with former Orlando City defender Brad Rusin about the U.S. Open Cup and his new journey in Miami. Plus we preview the USOC match and Montreal, talk Pride and OCB, and more.

Sometimes we can be big ol’ windbags (OK, most of the time), but we really had a lot to discuss this week despite the fact that neither Orlando City nor the Orlando Pride were in action this past weekend. We talked about Orlando City B’s 1-1 draw with the Rochester Rhinos, the USMNT’s World Cup qualifying efforts, the USWNT’s European trip, Alex Morgan’s return, the U.S. Open Cup, the upcoming match vs. Montreal Impact, and a whole lot more.

Joining us this week is former Orlando City and current Miami FC center back Brad Rusin, who talks about returning to the City Beautiful for a competitive match against an MLS side he helped build in its early years in the USL. Brad also talked about his journey since leaving Orlando, what the Open Cup means, how he approaches the game, and how he once poached a goal from Tyler Turner.

We also answered your questions from Twitter (use #AskTMLPC and hit us up with a tweet) and looked ahead with key match-ups and predictions for Orlando City’s upcoming games.


Here’s how it all went down:

0:12- With Orlando City and the Pride off this weekend, we looked back at OCB’s draw against Rochester, including the Orlando debut of Josh Saunders. Plus, USMNT World Cup qualifying and that dazzling Michael Bradley chip!

24:34- Brad Rusin jumps on and acknowledges that Orlando fans probably weren’t thrilled with his stint at Tampa Bay, but he owned up to it and had a lot to say about his new team, Miami FC.

39:14- The USWNT, Alex Morgan, Marta, the U.S. U-23 women (and Dani Weatherholt), plus U.S. Open Cup pontificating, key match-ups and predictions for the Montreal Impact match, our mailbag, and more!
