- - - - WARNING: I noted 3 f-bombs as we recorded this but could only find 2 to bleep when I edited. Then I found it at 1:53 but only after the original file was corrupted, so live with it. - - - - Pat and Pete head straight back to the office after a crushing 3-2 collapse against the grossest franchise in soccer, then talk about cycling trainers and do a preview of what is sure to be a glorious victory over Minnesota in our home opener. Pat's back on Twitter @morrisonicpod, and you can email us to get more info on Zwift (or anything else) at firstname.lastname@example.org. Hail Hydra.

Email us at email@example.com or tweet into a Pete-managed void @morrisonicpod.
