Filibuster Podcast: Better than Ezra - Reliving the greatest game in Major League Soccer history

New, 3 comments

You've already listened to our live reactions to the very not live 1996 MLS Cup Final; now listen to Adam, Jason and Ben as they give the treatment to the 2004 Eastern Conference Final, called by some the best game in MLS history. Apologies in advance for all the "Better than Ezra" jokes, including the one in the title.

It's February, and we're finally releasing the second half of our two-part game re-watch series, featuring the 2004 Eastern Conference Final, played at RFK Stadium between D.C. United and the New England Revolution. This game went into penalties - so it's a very long episode for us - and it's cited by some as the most exciting match in MLS history. So don't miss this episode.

If you missed the first part of this series last month, here's the story: Needing to fill some imaginary airtime over the offseason, and looking for an excuse to get together when there's no domestic soccer being played, a few of us from B&RU gathered at my house - myself, Jason (ChestRockwell) and Ben (benuski). We hooked the TV up to the internet and streamed a couple classic MLS matches from KickTV, using my microphone to record our reactions and conversations during the game, et voila! All of a sudden, two podcast episodes were born.

Obviously, big thanks and kudos to Jimmy Conrad and the guys over at KickTV for their work putting these games up for everyone to watch for free. Without them, this episode wouldn't be possible.

If you're interested in watching the game - we recommend watching it on mute while listening to us for a complete multimedia extravaganza - we've embedded it below. As always, thank you all for listening. We encourage you to get in touch in the comments or on Twitter, @FilibusterDCU, or by emailing us at filibusterpodcast [at] gmail [dot] com.
