    Hello Colorado Rapids fans! This week on Holding The High Line, the season is over. Rabbi and Red recap the playoff loss to Minnesota United FC. We then do our general 2020 Season Review.
    Red eats a pudding cup. Rabbi tries to make sense of Colorado's season and the progress that was made in the context of the chaos that is 2020. We finish the show with a big segment of Ask HTHL.
    We had some technical issues with this show. The audio quality isn't great. We know what the problem was and it will not happen again. Apologies.
