Duuude!!!!

Quite funny. But their theme song sounds like something you’d hear in a rundown strip club in Tucson, Arizona, in the late 90s.

Brings me back to El Barrio

Took a page out of the book “How to be Gully” and writing a 5 star review on my wife’s phone my guy! If you miss your crazy neighbors from your old neighborhood, look no further! Plus they do talk and know about soccer, eventually in each podcast. I first heard you two on the United Soccer Coaches podcast with Dean Linke and I had tears in my eyes laughing, so I started listening by going to the first episodes and working my way to the current ones. So if you are looking for a guy that looks like a mobster when he wears a suit and can out dance Justin Timberlake and another host with high cheek bones, who are the hilliest soccer podcast, you have made it to the right place!

A slow turn into Gully

I’m white. Sunblock every DAY white. And I love soccer, so started consuming every soccer podcast I could find. I had never heard the word “gully” before this podcast and I knew I wasn’t it, but I kept coming back each week because the uniquely American diversity of these voices was something special. Then one day, dressed professionally for work, I’m walking down the sidewalk DOUBLED OVER. Tears, uncontrollable. Strangers looking at me funny. In my headphones was the LA poop story and I was dyyyyinng with laughter. That’s when I knew I was going to listen to everything these guys do, and you should too. Their wedding toasts are endearing and their jokes are funny, their questions insightful, and their content worth your time!
