MLS: Chicago Fire at Orlando City SC Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

Dave and I are ready for soccer to return. We’re so ready. Empty stadium? Full stadium? You name it. Give us soccer. But we’re really not too interested if it’s going to put people in harm’s way. We discuss the possibility of safely returning to the sport we love and some prospective rule changes that we could be seeing if and when soccer comes back — namely, more substitutions. Is it enough? Too much? We mull that over.

We answer our listeners’ questions just about every week, but this is the first time we’ve had one of you on! Longtime listener David Victor jumps on with us and lets us know how he became an Orlando City fan, how he’s converting his girlfriend, his favorite player, and much more. It was fun chatting with him and we’re glad we could work around some initial technical gremlins.

Our mailbag this week was short and sweet but it involves movies and plot holes.

If there’s anything — and we do mean anything —you want us to address on our next show, just ask by tweeting it to us at @TheManeLand with the hashtag #AskTMLPC.

Stay safe and enjoy the show.

Here’s how show No. 194 went down:

0:16 - Me and Dave are still discussing this damnable lockdown, but also the possibility that the Bundesliga may soon be serving as the world’s professional sports guinea pigs.

34:25 - David Victor lives in Michigan now but he used to live in Orlando and he’s been a die hard Orlando City fan for a while. He doesn’t have to worry about those pesky streaming blackouts either!

55:15 - A short mailbag this week but we give it our usual treatment and then I forgot what we talked about in our rambling conclusion. It was probably really great though.
