Dad Pod

Awesome insider podcast from two of the most humble Timbers, perhaps MLS players out there. I definitely look forward to each episode. As much as I enjoy the Timbers as a soccer team, I really enjoy feeling the pulse of its heart, knowing that the boys in Green and Gold are doing good on the road and having fun along the way. As a dad to a 16 month-old, I really enjoyed the latest Dad pod. Thanks so much Gents. See you at Providence real soon.
