Two things Feuerstein’s Fire loves most: talking with the pundits who bring the game to life for us on TV, and the ins and outs of stadium deals. And there is a bit of both those thing’s on the April 17 edition of the show. Tune in from 8:00 pm, Eastern; 5:00 pm, Pacific.
There will be a chat with a legendary voice of American soccer. An Irish voice: the man who made onion bags famous in the USA. You’ve seen him many times on ESPN FC, and ESPN’s UEFA Champions League, World Cup, and MLS broadcasts. He is also a former MetroStars TV Analyst and is currently calling Philadelphia Union games with J.P. DellaCamera. Tommy Smyth is on this edition of Feuerstein’s Fire.
And the show will also look for some more information about one of the latest soccer stadium deals to be announced. Jonathan Lintner, Louisville City’s communications officer will join me to discuss his club’s plans to leave the Louisville Bats minor league baseball stadium and move into a place of their own in downtown Louisville.
There will also be a recap of second division action around the country, and the Red Bulls hour. There are two wins to discuss in Red Bulls land: NYRB II’s win over Orlando City B, and the first team’s 2-0 win over D.C. United. And Alex Muyl made it impossible to ignore his request for his name to be pronounced correctly by RBNY and MLS media by scoring his first goal of the new season - so there’ll be a little getting to grips with that detail as well. Muh-wheel...Mmmmwheel...M’weel...this’ll get straightened out, Alex. Promise.
Listen tonight live at 8PM EDT; 5PM PDT. Or listen to the archived show at your convenience.
