The Lions spent an hour deadlocked with New York City FC on the road but then things went sideways with some absolutely lethal turnovers in the defensive third. Orlando City took the 2-0 L at Yankee Stadium, making it three matches without a win on the young season. We talked it out (because that’s what we do). We also vented a little bit because even we get frustrated by results but we’re not yet ready to abandon ship.

We are pretty psyched about the upcoming Orlando Pride season and to prepare for that we talked to one of the team’s new faces, defender Carson Pickett. The Florida native and FSU product told us what fans need to know about her, discussed the transition from Seattle to Orlando, touched on Saturday’s match against Utah, and more.

The final segment includes our answers to listener questions in our Ask The Mane Land PawedCast mailbag. If there’s something you want us to address on our next show, just tweet it to us @TheManeLand with the hashtag #AskTMLPC. We also give you our key match-ups and score predictions (sure to be wrong) for the Pride’s season opener against Utah Royals FC.

Here’s how No. 117 went:

0:12- Orlando City’s first road trip went poorly but really it was two horrible giveaways that undid some solid work. We break it down and give you our Man of the Match picks.

47:07- Carson Pickett is ready for the 2018 NWSL season and she seems excited at the potential this year’s Orlando Pride team has.
