D.C. United opens Audi Field and Wayne Rooney debuts: Filibuster podcast

We look back on a momentous night for the Black-and-Red

D.C. United’s first game at Audi Field has actually happened, and it was a win! Jason, Ben, and Adam talk about all of our feelings about the new stadium, warts and all, and hope that the warts will be quickly ironed out. We also talk about the issues between the team and two of its supporters’ groups, which was noticeable on game day, and talk about how we hope that the situation can be worked out.

In the second segment, we talk about the game! We talk about Yamil Asad’s first goal at Audi Field, before breaking down all aspects of Wayne Rooney’s debut and what it meant for the team. We also had to talk about the defense and how there aren’t as many people who can win headers as in years past. Finally, we talk about what this win means for the season and where the team can go from here. Give it a listen!

With your support, we’ve made two big upgrades! The first is that we are producing chapter marks for the segments now, and those should appear directly in your podcast app (or on SoundCloud, if you listen there). The second is that there are now audio transcriptions of the podcast for those who want or need them! They are available on our Internet Archive page only, so you’ll need to go over there to find them; they’re produced by speech recognition software, so they’re not 100% accurate, but they look readable. These upgrades are only possible because of the support we get on Patreon, so if you appreciate these upgrades, consider pitching in.
