MLS: Austin FC-Press Conference Erich Schlegel-USA TODAY Sports

We’ve come down from the high of our 200th episode with two outstanding guests just in time to bring you...whatever this week’s show is. We did make inquiries about guests this week but they didn’t pan out, although we’ve likely only kicked the can down the road on that front. So...this show will be short, right? Well...that was the intention and we simply don’t seem capable at this point, so just listen in whatever increments you can.

We’ve got more discussion on both the MLS is Back Tournament and the 2020 NWSL Challenge Cup as more details have emerged about both since we last spoke. We know who Orlando City will play and some details about the tourney itself, and we know when the Orlando Pride will play and how to watch them. We also discuss a pretty cool 50th birthday gift that Alexi Lalas was given this week.

Our listener mail this week inquired about burritos and the zombie apocalypse. We love you guys and your variety of questions. Keep them coming. 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.

If the show ended there, it would have been a nice, crisp show. However...we continued to discuss our Marvel Cinematic Universe rewatch with Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange. Neither movie is perfect, but we let you know what we liked about them and some of the things that were bothersome.

Stay safe and enjoy the show.

Here’s how show our supersized No. 201 extravaganza went down:

0:15 - Details! We now know more about both the MLS and NWSL tournaments that are going to bring soccer joy (and pain) back into our lives. Oh, and happy birthday to Alexi.

35:25 - The mailbag inquires about burrito places and burrito bowls and we like talking about burritos almost as much as eating them. Oh, and which Orlando players are your zombie apocalypse squad? We discuss!

49:15 - We turn this question thing around on our listeners and ask one of our own (send us your answers either below or on Twitter. And this week we delve into the most recent Captain America flick and the debut of Doctor Strange.
