Filibuster podcast episode 87: D.C. United versus Toronto FC, World Cup 2014, and D.C. United versus San Jose Earthquakes

On tap: Weinhenstephaner, Uinta Baa Baa Black Lager, and Flying Dog Dead Rise.

What would Wednesdays be without your weekly dose of Filibuster? Luckily, this is not the week to find out as we are back with an action packed show; even a mild buzzing sound that Adam develops halfway through the show will not stop us! (Although we do apologize for it)

We start by talking about D.C. United's 2-1 victory over Toronto FC: We cover Nick DeLeon's goal and his recent performance in general, how D.C. United will score without Fabian Espindola, the performances of Lewis Neal and Perry Kitchen, and Toronto's (misguided) tactics in the second half.

We then discuss the recently-released schedule for the Concacaf Champions League (Concachamps, if you will). While the end of August will be brutal for United, it is surprisingly not as bad as it could have been. We then check back in with the World Cup, and give our thoughts about Germany v. Brazil and Netherlands v. Argentina.

Finally, we turn our eyes to the late-Friday-night game against the San Jose Earthquakes: We discuss what has changed about the 'Quakes since 2012, whether or not Chris Wondolowski can provide any creativity, what they need to do to change their poor form, and what D.C. United should do to win. Give us a listen!
