Orlando City added Brazilian forward Alexandre Pato this past week after a tumultuous week of getting his signature. The Lions have addressed another key need this off-season and that should pay dividends when the team takes the field this season. We’re here to break down the week that was and discuss how sometimes these kinds of situations take twists and turns.

We also address some Lucas Lima rumors that leaked into our Twitter mentions this week and some funny interplay with someone who shares the Palmeiras attacking midfielder’s name. We’ve got a free meal coming at Ponderosa when a certain musician gets vaccinated and makes his way to the City Beautiful and we can’t wait to hit that all-you-can-eat buffet!

The SheBelieves Cup is coming to Exploria Stadium this week and we know which Orlando Pride players will be suiting up for their national teams for the tournament. We’ll have full coverage of the event and we’re hoping there are no Jordyn Listro slide tackles on Alex Morgan or Marta this week.

This week’s mailbag had questions about Pato and our zoological preferences. 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.

That’s all for this week.

Stay safe and enjoy the show!

Here’s how show No. 233 went down:

0:15 - Pato has joined the Lions and we’re going to talk about how it almost didn’t happen after it almost did and then finally it really did. Confused yet? Well, you will be.

43:30 - We dive into our mailbag to answer our listener (viewer?) questions about Pato and what his arrival means for Orlando City and Daryl Dike.

1:01:24 - For absolutely no reason at all, I discuss my decision to rewatch Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace. I have been punished enough, so don’t @ me.
