Okay, we’re back for one last episode– We couldn’t let the Thorns go to the NWSL Final without one, right? We discuss the semifinal against the Orlando Pride (and possibly a member of that team who may or may not have been kicked out of Epcot), the season as a whole and tomorrow’s final against […]Read More Episode 18: When You Wish Upon a Star
Despite concerns, the Thorns triumphed over the Western New York Flash…I mean, the North Carolina Courage. We discuss the match with Richard Hamje and special guest Kay Hudson, as well as taking advantage of her homeland to pick her brain about the Australian W-League.Read More Episode 17: Overcoming Courage
Gwyneth Defriez and Dakota Todd join Patrick this week to talk a little bit about the Dash vs Thorns match, Carli Lloyd’s unwillingness to understand what constitutes a red card as well as a conversation about why She Who Will Not Be Named never quite fit in with Portland fans. Both Gwyn and Dakota are […]Read More Episode 16: An Outside Perspective
I mean, it was live when we did it. If you like to rewatch the game with our superior commentary as opposed to the Go90 announcers, both our unexpectedly long pregame (thanks, rain delay!) and the match itself are available. I’ve split them into two episodes, so you can listen to either or both, because […]Read More Live Commentary on Dash v Thorns Now Available!

I apologize for that, and promise it will be perfect for the […]Read More Episode 15: Oh Referee, Oh Referee…
Just in time for your morning commute, we have a new episode of Riveting! It’s a special double game, double Hamje edition, where we talk about the victories over the Boston Breakers and the, uh… Piscataway Township Sky Blue FC(?) That can’t be right. Anyway, Patrick is joined by Richard and Jeanette Hamje for […]Read More Episode 14: A Very Special Doubleheader Episode
