Congrats on the USWNT winning a fourth World Cup. It was truly amazing how hard they played, how much spirit they showed and how easily they handled the pressures of this tournament. They should make you – and our country – extremely proud.
However, I’m writing you about something much more disappointing.

Do you want to hear three men review 30 odd shirts over the course of a 90 minute podcast? Of course you do! We took a very visual topic, and skipped our usual USfanTV YouTube video show this week to talk about the new crop of adidas MLS jerseys on the Minivan Dad Soccer Pod, which doesn’t make sense, but whatever. We had a lot of fun doing this, and we think you’ll like it. Give it a listen, and here’s a link to look at the jerseys as you follow along.
You can forget about the start of this show, in which we wonder if Christian Pulisic would help BVB defeat Tottenham at Wembley (no!). Skip ahead, and we debate who are the five most influential figures in US Soccer history. Who’s on your list? Is it stars like Landon Donovan, Mia Hamm or Clint Dempsey? What about executives like Lamar Hunt or Chuck Blazer? Or, is there room for two non-Americans who made the bold decision to play in the US–Pele and David Beckham?
If we all survive the polar vortex, we could end up producing a new show tonight. In the meantime, you should listen to the most recent episode of the Minivan Dad Soccer Pod, where Pat and Chris joined TJ to answer strange questions about brewery tours and historic figures. There’s some soccer in there, too. While you’re at it, here are a couple recent USfanTV shows to watch, too. Bonus points if you watch/listen to all three!
From all of us at USfanTV – Chris, Hat Guy (Pat) and TJ – Merry Christmas! See you in 2019!
