Filibuster podcast episode 207: Not as good as a rocket ship

D.C. United is flying into the playoffs, just like a rocket ship.

The Filibuster podcast, just like D.C. United, is on a rocket ride of success as we blast into the playoffs! We open with United’s 3-1 win over New York City FC, and ponder whether or not the first half was the best 45 minutes of the year for the team. We talk about the delicious ridiculousness of Bobby Boswell crossing the ball to Steve Birnbaum and break down the pressure that United applied on the Pigeons that led to the third goal. We also wax rhapsodic about the team-wide beauty that was the first goal, talk about the United players on the team of the week, and try to ask whether or not this is a new version of Bennyball.

We then talk about United’s last game of the season, the rematch against Orlando City SC. We ponder whether they will be more threatening with nothing for which to play, and discuss the young players who have spots on next year’s team in mind. We discuss why Kevin Molino has become the odd man out, whether or not this game will look more like the win against Columbus Crew SC, and then look wide to talk about the Colorado Rapids’ style of play and how that compares to D.C. United. Give it a listen!
