The Last Hurrah
It's Round 33 and that means there's just 90 minutes left take care of any final business before the playoffs begin in earnest. Some teams have more to tend to than others, and the guys start their wide-ranging discussion with the Supporters' Shield matchup going down in Seattle between the Sounders and Galaxy. Whoever comes out on top of that one will face Portland or Vancouver. Will ETR's prediction from a few weeks ago come true? What about all that crazy seeding out East?
We'll have to wait to see how it all turns out, but first we go to ETR fantasy land to create our own playoff brackets based on pure entertainment value. What would you want to see? And how would you prepare MLS teams and future MLS players for the wiles of CONCACAF Champions League? We take a look at the lay of the land with one final CCL group game to go and propose our own CONCACAF camp to get North America's players ready to succeed in the region.
Finally, Sabrina the Teenage Witch makes one final appearance, and the guys debate Landon Donovan's replacement with the Galaxy.

ExtraTime Radio Book Club:
If you thought you knew everything there was to know about the 2014 World Cup, think again. Author James Montague dug up the stories you likely never heard about in the lead-up to Brazil 2014 in "Thirty-One Nil." We spoke to Montague about his adventures around the world and if you haven't yet ordered the book, you'll likely be tempted to after listening to our special Book Club edition.
Meanwhile, get started on the book club's next selection: The Numbers Game by Chris Anderson and David Sally (see left).
