Quick audio warning - we did this remote (up yours, Omicron) and there was some clicking on Pete's side and my headphone mic is all echoey, so it may be deeply irritating if you have sensitive ears. Skip if it bugs you. It doesn't hurt my feelings and you have your own Valeri memories. @morrisonicpod for Pete or morrisonicpod at gmail for Pat.
They can't take the joy you felt away from you. #rctid
PLAY OFF PREVIEW HELLLLLL YEAH. Listen this is probably Pete's most in depth preview ever, there was a long segment about xG that I could not for the life of me understand but some of you will LOVE then I begged you all to sing Roll on COLOMBIA (get it? Squid didn't get it. It's about all the Colombian players) and then we talked about ticket bullshit but managed to end on a good note.
I have 3 pieces of good news
a) The Timbers won!!
b) Dairon is back for the championship game IN PORTLAND
C) We spent so much time celebrating we ran out of time, so there will be a second pod this week to preview the game against NYCFC
I'M NOT SAYING WE'RE DEFINITELY GOING TO WIN THIS GAME BUT I LIKE OUR CHANCES!! #RCTID
Timbers win! Timbers win! Timbers win! Yes that card on Asprilla was BS but let's focus on the HUGE AMAZING POSITIVE and then win that next game so my man Dairon can win us a championship.

Must be us, because Dairon never left! We'll figure out what's doing after the Cup victory. Until then, let's have fun out there.
We celebrated the 300th episode by talking about some truly terrible stuff we aren't qualified to comment on. Well, I mean I just realized it was our 300th, but the Thorns stuff just makes us sick.
6 goal scorers is fun @morrisonic
It was short but I'm in a good mood. Revel in the misfortune of bad people, they would do the same to you. @morrisonicpod to talk to Pete, morrisonicpod at gmail to talk to Pat
This went better than I could have hoped. @morrisonicpod for Pete, morrisonicpod at gmail for Pat
It's my birthday. No episode description for you. #rctid @morrisonicpod for Pete or morrisonicpod at gmail for Pat.
I have high hopes for this next game. What could possibly go wrong?
Look, all the rugby got canceled by covid but we found a way to fill an hour.
Man o man have we had some internet issues this week
It is Nick's birthday! Thank you for coming to Moab when there was nothing for you to do. Thank you for scheduling me a vaccine appointment and maybe saving my life. Thank you (and Boy Nick) for giving me an antigen test when there wasn't a single goddamn one in the whole city. Thank you for making debatably the cutest child in the world. And most of all, thank you for being my friend when I really needed one and there was no real reason you needed a weird older lonely dude friend. Happy birthday.
Please listen to the Hostile Work Environment podcast, their audio quality is amazing and Marc tried to help us, he really did.
Listen man, I'm scared too but you can't just give up hope.
Cleanse yourself in the purifying flame of heavy metal music people. Your souls will thank me. Watch soccer I guess. I don't get it but Pete is my friend and it's what he likes talking about.
Winning is fun. Come see Gaytheist tomorrow.
We had to keep it short, luckily Pat had nothing to add.
I did a bit at the very end of this that Pete absolutely hated. He sounds OK on the pod but you should have seen his face. If I am being honest I actually did at what I thought was the end, and then he did another 5 minutes of soccer content but I cut it and put it at the end anyway.
Also here is Big Corbs' great piece on the Blazers https://www.wweek.com/sports/2021/07/01/fire-neil-olshey/
Somehow I muted Pete on the last one. Not an indication of my feelings for the man, I promise
