||Rapids Thugcast Episode 31: B*ckham, Transfers, Trades, and Drafts||You thought we were done for the off-season, didn't you? Didn't you? Well, the Rapids Thugcast in 2012 isn't quite dead yet, even though the season is over we've still got plenty to talk about. This is an airing of grievances episode -- Happy Festivus, everybody -- where Ben and I don't have any particular topic to talk about, just the off-season and things that bugged us about 2012.||12/6/12||Free||View In iTunes|
||Rapids Thugcast Episode 30: It's Almost Over!||Two weeks ago, we recorded a Thugcast and my computer decided to eat it. One week ago, we were just too lazy. Fortunately, Ben and I were able to get together to record a penultimate Thugcast for the season this week!||10/26/12||Free||View In iTunes|
||Rapids Thugcast Episode 29: Bring Back (Humberto Suazo Dressed As) Rapidman!||A draw with Los Angeles, some hilarious playoff scenarios, the supporters terrace and Rapidman are the topics of conversation that highlight Episode 29 of the dirtiest podcast in football! Oh, and we bitch a lot about how nobody likes the Earthquakes.||10/3/12||Free||View In iTunes|
||Rapids Thugcast Episode 28: That game was more 2011 than an actual game from 2011||Ben & UZ discuss the loss against Vancouver.||9/27/12||Free||View In iTunes|
||Rapids Thugcast Episode 27: More Losses!||At some point, we're going to run out of ways to say 'the Rapids lost again in just about the same style that they have lost seemingly every other game this season'. Actually, I think we might have hit that threshold several weeks ago, but if we admitted to that we would have already run out of things to talk about. Check into the Rapids Thugcast this week to hear Ben and myself chat about: * The 2-0 loss to the LA Galaxy and why it looked so damn similar to all the other losses we've seen this year * Chris Klute, Colorado's newest member from the Atlanta Silverbacks. Also, making fun of Eric Wynalda because that's one of the great American past-times, right? * A discussion on Paul Bravo and the position of 'technical director' in Major League Soccer. * Sunday's game agaisnt the Vancouver Whitecaps and why we're dreading it even if Ben predicts a win.||9/20/12||Free||View In iTunes|
||Rapids Thugcast Episode 26: Portland x2 Edition!||We've had two games against the Portland Timbers since last we Thugged it up, so this episode is chock full of Portland talk. Ben and I chat for a good hour about those two games and, of course, newly traded former Rapid Wells Thompson.||9/13/12||Free||View In iTunes|
||Rapids Thugcast Episode 25: Tuna Mac Edition!||It's a shorty this week, we ended up re-recording the Thugcast because of technical difficulties so it got cut down a bit. It's not like we really had that much to talk about following that awful, awful loss to the San Jose Earthquakes anyway. Also, Ben is eating Tuna Mac.||8/30/12||Free||View In iTunes|
||Rapids Thugcast Episode 24: Rant-A-Licious Edition!||UZ and Ben whine a lot in this episode, but that's par for the course at this point. Also, previews for the Earthquakes game and Hendry Thomas!||8/22/12||Free||View In iTunes|
||Rapids Thugcast Episode 22: Lawsy Lawsy Edition!||This week's Thugcast comes at the end of a terrible July, and we're hoping that we will find some new-found life in August! We kind of doubt it though, all things considered. Join Ben and myself this week for chatter about the following: The loss to Seattle and the failures of the month of July in general, Don Garber's failure of a new schedule and how they are slowly ruining the RSL-Colorado rivalry by making the Rocky Mountain Cup mean less and less, Pablo Mastroeni's possible new role as a player/coach and whether or not he will join the team as a full time coach at the end of the season, and this weekend's Real Salt Lake match, with Ben making a surprisingly optimistic prediction. Sadly though, we forgot to insert our made up rumor of the week where we decided that Edu and Claudio Lopez were now the same person instead of Scott Palguta.||8/2/12||Free||View In iTunes|
||Rapids Thugcast Episode 21: Palguta Conspiracy Edition!||Alert alert, we won a game! Unfortunately, it was against a team that didn't give us any points in the standings, and even more unfortunately the Thugcast had to be recorded before Tuesday night when the game took place. Still, I think we hit the nail on the head with our 'post game reaction' to that game, since... well, listen in and you'll see how ridiculous we are.||7/26/12||Free||View In iTunes|
