MLS: D.C. United at Orlando City SC Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Look, I’ll be honest. I didn’t think Orlando City’s first loss would come before its first win this season. But then again, I didn’t expect the team to start the season without all of its Designated Players and a few other important guys at this point, either. We’re breaking down a disappointing loss to Minnesota United but we refuse to give in to negativity just a couple matches into the season.

We’re also talking about Orlando Pride Media Day and the final preseason tune-up for Tom Sermanni’s squad — a blowout win at the University of South Florida. There’s a lot to like about this year’s Pride team and we’re excited to get the NWSL season started.

Cam Lindley joins us as this week’s guest and he discussed several topics, including why he sought a trade from the Chicago Fire, why 2018 was time for him to turn pro, the trials and tribulations of his first two MLS games, and much more.

The final segment includes our key match-ups and score predictions (sure to be wrong) for Orlando City at New York City FC, and our answers to listener questions in our Ask The Mane Land PawedCast mailbag.

Here’s how No. 116 rolled out:

0:12- It wasn’t the result we wanted but it was nice to see Adrian Heath and Kevin Molino in Orlando again. We give you our MotM picks, celebrate Sacha Kljestan’s impending return, and talk Pride soccer.

43:57- Cam Lindley gives his thoughts on playing defensive midfield, including an honest analysis of is first couple MLS games.

1:01:24- The #AskTMLPC mailbag was light, but we made up for it by babbling about the Lions at the Pigeons this Saturday!
