    Out of the Paradigm

    Hello Colorado Rapids fans! This week on Holding The High Line, we're making a paradigm shift because that game against San Jose was a mess. Rabbi and Red banter about lots of fictional and real soccer news. The guys try to make sense of the 1-1 draw against the Earthquakes. We talk about what the potentially imminent transfer of Sam Vines means financially and on the pitch. Then we preview the Double Game Week against FC Dallas and Real Salt Lake.
    During this episode we discuss an article by Doug McIntyre (https://www.foxsports.com/stories/mls/atlanta-united-fc-fire-coach-gabriele-heinze-at-a-crossroads-doug-mcintyre), Red's Rapids summer transfer preview (https://lastwordonsports.com/soccer/2021/07/06/colorado-rapids-secondary-transfer-window/), and our In Mike We Trust shirt (https://holdingthehighline.substack.com/p/order-your-hthl-in-mike-we-trust).
