MLS: Chicago Fire at Orlando City SC Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Soccer isn’t exactly back but the Lions did report for workouts yesterday, albeit under strict social distancing protocols. It’s not exactly a return to normalcy but I’m sure the players were excited to be back on the pitch together, even if they were much further than six feet apart. Some pro leagues — Korea and Germany — are about to start back up with actual games, and NASCAR returns in 10 days. So...sports are kinda back but really not so much.

Here to talk to us about the return to Orlando City’s training facility is defender Kamal Miller. He was kind enough to discuss what his first day back was like. He also let us know what he was up to during lockdown and how he started his “Cooking with KMillz” videos on the Orlando City social media sites. Big thanks to Kamal for dropping by for his second time on the PawedCast.

We answer our listeners’ questions and you guys seem to want to hear about our thoughts on movies. It turns out we like movies and we like to talk about movies — maybe too much, actually. Thanks for the questions via Twitter and email.

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.

Finally, we wrapped things up with a discussion of our Marvel Cinematic Universe rewatch (so far). It’s Marvel Week here at SB Nation and coincidentally Dave and I are rewatching all of the MCU movies in order of release date, so we’re sharing our thoughts on Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk this week. One of those movies was good and one of them was not. Tune in for spoilers or drop out after the mailbag section.

Stay safe and enjoy the show.

Here’s how show No. 195 went down:

0:16 - Orlando City players are training again, the NWSL and USL are about to start doing the same, the Bundesliga will be playing games soon, and Alex Leitao talked about what the club will do if games are canceled.

32:11 - Kamal Miller talks about being back on the field with the guys, playing Call of Duty with his teammates, how he’s staying in touch with his Canadian National Team family, and how he chose what to make on “Cooking with KMillz,” including a dish he has not yet shot a video for (but we want him to).

46:43 - Our mailbag gets us talking about movies and the Bundesliga and we liked talking about movies so much that we discussed Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk at much greater length than intended!
