MLS: Sporting KC at Atlanta United FC
Salloi is everyone’s little brother.

The first third of the season has been a fun ride. Thad, Cody, Aly & Bob take time to appreciate it because who knows if it will last?

After the mandatory discussions over Yohan Croizet & Khiry Shelton, Bob gets things going with an Is or Isn’t. Everyone provides a takeaway from thus far in the season. We covered the MLS Player Salaries that were released recently examining who is overpaid & who is underpaid.

Don Garber just paid a visit to KC and Pinnacle so we have a brief talk about the Commissioner and US Soccer. We also speculate about the Wednesday’s announcement at Pinnacle.

Cody smells good. Not bad. He smells good.
