Andy Najar wants you to listen to Filibuster! At least, we're assuming he wants you to listen - we haven't really spoken to him yet. But we have spoken to one of his biggest fans, Tony Limarzi, and he definitely wants you to listen.
On Thursday night, my Macbook Pro crashed. I mean, it called hospice care and got itself mentally ready to spend the rest of its days in bed. That was exceedingly stressful for me, because we were planning to record the first episode of Filibuster - the Black And Red United Podcast on Saturday, and I didn't have time (or money) to buy a new one.
But that couldn't stop us. My fiancee stepped up and offered us her computer; we got everything set up. And now Filibuster is officially a thing!
In our inaugural episode, we talk about D.C. United's offseason and look at the tactics Ben Olsen's side will probably be employing in 2012. We talk to a voice that will be very familiar to United fans, the amazingly friendly and fun Tony Limarzi, who did not hesitate even a second when the host of a yet-to-exist podcast asked him to come on the show. Finally, we preview the season for each team in the Eastern Conference, one sentence at a time.
