• Matthew De George (@sportsdoctormd) brings some professionalism to the show as he chats with Joe about the Union’s upcoming playoff game against the New York Red Bulls, what the Union need to do in order to progress in the MLS Cup playoffs, and whether or not anything could ever replace the “Ray Gaddis Goal” in his heart (30:36)

The Gang Talks About Your Philadelphia Union The Philly Frenetics Podcast

The local professional soccer team has made it impossible to ignore its success, so Joe gets to hold court for an entire segment to wax poetic about the Union advancing to the MLS Eastern Conference Final (9:40).  Speaking of holding court, Joe shares his experience after being summoned for jury duty this week, and of course, the guys put the Eagles on trial for impersonating a football team on Sunday at MetLife Stadium (33:09).  The verdict: guilty as charged.
