    #490: An American soccer fan backpacking in Europe

    #490: An American soccer fan backpacking in Europe

    A quick chat with Otis Lyons, a young guy from the Bay Area who has been traveling in Europe and North Africa, watching USMNT players at their home clubs, for the past two months. He visited Gaga Slonina's home club for a home game, saw Balogun at Monaco, Juve-Milan in Turin, Johnny at Osasuna in Pamplona and many more games in various places. Meanwhile he ran a marathon in Tunisia and ran into a snag in Belgium. We met him on the Scuffed Italy trip and thought it'd be fun to catch up a couple weeks later.

Crowd in jerry’s world

There were a lot of Panamanians, Honduras, El Salvador and other nationalities that do not support El Tri. In addition to dual citizens. Also, the crowd appreciates a good goal. Saludos

Positive psych

I wait patiently after every game for the Scuffed review. This one did not let me down. I felt like I was laying down on the couch and the doctors office and it was explained to me the value of watching a game that is so stressful, but you know the score! Now I’m going to watch it again and look for the things to smile at, the sequences that were building.

All with the hidden knowledge that I know what happens. It’s like understanding revelation in the Bible. You have a greater hope for life when you realize God has a plan. That his son gave his life for a reason. That guy loves us.

and hopefully soccer is a game we play in Paradise!

Review of DR

Great show, love constructive criticism and bring it up things I wish other podcast would touch on just my opinion but I think US soccer is trying to make Albert the next Alex Morgan, looking for a face of US soccer.
