Podcast: Michael Preston talks about the Sounders winning the CCL

After a decade of our schedules not lining up, we were finally able to sit down with fellow KUGR alum and the host of the CougCenter Hour Michael Preston to discuss the Sounders FC victory in the CCL finale against Pumas. The victory was a historic moment for not just the Sounders, but US soccer in general.

The day after we talked with Michael, we sat down and discussed the Mariners slow start, where the blame really lies for it. Which unfortunately rolls into a discussion about the damn baseball and how it’s impact offensive (and pitching) performances throughout the first month of the MLB schedule…spoiler alert, it’s not pretty. We also get to discuss the first three games of the Seattle Storm’s season, and which star is missing due to Covid protocol; the Seahawks draft also gets some air time too.
