Pat & Pete bask in the glow of a home opener win over Columbus, look forward to a potential rock fight at San Jose, spend some more time with the schedule and take a first stab at explaining the roster rules. Program note: Pat decides after 10 boring minutes discussing the roster rules that this is a topic best spread out over multiple episodes and basically bails on the segment. Learning! Follow us @morrisonicpod!
Pat & Pete reconvene to try to draw some meaning from preseason, look over the schedule for the season, run through the starting line up and say mean things about Darren Mattocks!

Pete comes back to town to listen to Pat yell about the Blazers win over Golden State, we re-cap the game against Minnesota and express some rare sympathy for Seattle.

Pete and Pat get started podcasting about the Timbers and the other stuff. We also learn to not leave our cell phones on the desk while recording, so sorry about the last two minutes or so. Also, Everton beats Newcastle 3-0 in the bar downstairs. We don't talk about that game, but there is some mysterious cheering throughout the podcast that needed some explaining.
