Filibuster podcast episode 88: San Jose Earthquakes, World Cup farewell, and previewing Chivas USA

On tap tonight: PBR, Resurrection ale, Blantons bourbon, and crisp, clean water

Even though the World Cup is over, the Filibuster crew is here to bring soccer noises into your ears. Adam, Jason, and Ben first turn our attention to D.C. United's 2-1 win over the San Jose Earthquakes, and talk about their road win streak, Bill Hamid, Chris Rolfe, the MLS team of the week, and the difference in performance between the first half hour and the next sixty minutes. We end the segment by looking again at the quandry that is Eddie Johnson.

In the second segment, we give a brief rundown of the World Cup as a whole, including our cures for our massive World Cup hangovers, what D.C. United and MLS can do to take advantage of the World Cup, and the TV ratings of the final.

In our last segment, we bring on Alicia Rodriguez of The Goat Parade to preview all things Chivas USA. We ask her about the Goats four game winning streak, Cubo Torres and their prospects of keeping him, the cast of characters around Torres, Wilmer Cabrerra, and Eric Avila and other fullbacks. We also get an update on the team's ownership situation, and close by getting a gameplan to beat Chivas. Give it a listen!
