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

What’s it like outside? Are there wolves? There are probably wolves, I’m guessing. I’m going to have to fight off vicious packs of them when I’m allowed to go do stuff again. I just know it. But until then, we can still deliver podcasts to you from the safety and comfort of our own homes.

This week we do have some actual Orlando City and MLS/USL/NWSL news, along with some stuff that’s...well, less newsy. OCSC has done a good deed with its new #AllForORL initiative and you should check it out if you own a small business or if you frequent small businesses. Or if you’re just a good person who likes to help others. Luke Boden is in the news (for us, anyway).

We wrap up the discussion of our March Madness Orlando City Bracketology, which was easily won by Kaká. However, the Brazilian is not off to the best start in our “quaranteam” voting, in which you can select one of six groups of current and former Orlando City/Pride players and coaches who you’d most like to ride out a 14-day quarantine with.

We discuss Tiger King for a bit without getting majorly spoilery, so if you haven’t seen it yet, you can safely listen without getting more info than you’re likely to already have at this point. We also ponder eSports and what constitutes “sports” in general.

Finally, we answer our mailbag questions. Or question, anyway. We only had one this week but it was about streaming services, so it’s pretty topical. As always, 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 @TheManeLand with the hashtag #AskTMLPC.

Stay safe and enjoy the show.

Here’s how show No. 191 went down:

0:16 - There is actual Orlando City news this week! It’s not about games and such, but it’s still news. We also discuss the pro soccer training moratorium extensions and Luke Boden’s got a baby on the way.

29:18 - We break down the six groups in our “quaranteam” voting and in the end I just went with the group that had Tom Sermanni.

48:11 - Our mailbag, eSports, and whatever else we talked about. Who can even remember at this point?
