A Friendly Lunchtime Chat About MLS Expansion... And #SoccerWar (BRIAN BARRISH)

Today's #SoccerWar is going to be different.

Brian Barrish is a Son of Ben. (He also runs a podcast and edits for The Soccer Desk but that's only partially sort of relevant. Ok, that is too.) For those who don't know, the Sons of Ben pushed MLS hard for a franchise and made it happen in Philly.

So when we talk MLS expansion, they understand it from the inside.

How is it going to go? I don't know! But I do know it's going to be -- interesting.

TEDPOCALYPSE!!!!!!!!!!! Recap

Well, Friday's Lunch and Soccer was explosive.

The 32-minute segment began with a brief introduction to Ted Westervelt and, a quick exploration of where we are in #SoccerWar, and why promotion and relegation would be useful.

Then Eric came in at the 16th minute and there was some serious banter between the two. Finally we wrapped up with a surprise call-in from Roger Ferrer of the United States Association Football Leagues.

Both Ted and Roger want to do a sequel or expanded episode; discussions are pending. As always, the music is by Radio Nowhere.

If you missed today's #SoccerWar...'ll actually hear the whole show and its uncomfortable ending if you download or stream it.

See-- BTR (for now) only allows us 30 minute episodes. So live callers were shocked as Eric, yours truly and Alexis Guerrero were still arguing when the livestream went dead.

It sort of looked like this fight except we were in a radio show
and were in separate locales.

As always, click the picture to hear #SoccerWarNYC. (Perhaps... part I.)

Also, Alexis didn't get a chance to mention headlining the comedy series Party Illuminati in NYC tomorrow as he had originally planned so follow or message @NotAlexis for more details.

Update: We've got the embedding set up, dozens of hits, and Eric sounds primed to become our current co-host!

All this before TedPocalypse!

Wow. Sleepy.

Anyway, we've moved to BlogTalkRadio, and we'll be building up our site a bit more over the weekend.

Guesting on @TheTailgateShow, and tomorrow we go to @BlogTalkRadio

So was on The Tailgate Show yesterday; as always, it got crazy, and I think Mark Anderson hates me now because I said something about David Beckham, who as we know is the greatest footballer in history except for Pele and Maradona and probably Messi and Rooney for the modern era and a couple others. Anyway, we're moving to BlogTalkRadio because frankly, too many complaints.

And we're moving to lunch again, because dinner doesn't work.


And let's not forget....
