Podcast: A Galaxy Departure and Wild’s Salmon is a recipe for Orlando Questions

With NWSL losing a team to COVID, MLS and the Galaxy are starting to get nervous about the Orlando Tournament

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — Things seem to be going sideways in Orlando. There’s the increased number of positive tests, the reopening of Walt Disney World, and now the 10 cases of COVID-19 the Orlando Pride just announced.

What does the NWSL have to do with Major League Soccer’s “MLS is Back” tournament? Everything!

On today’s show, your hosts Josh Guesman and Kevin Baxter discuss a significant hiccup in the league’s return-to-play plan, and why it has everyone nervous about an Orlando tournament.

But the guys are also highlighting what’s keeping the MLS from announcing a schedule and when some teams could find themselves in the bubble. And that includes the Galaxy. That’s right, breaking news on when the club is expected to depart for the Swan and Dolphin hotel in Orlando.

Josh and Kevin will also bring you the talented Gordon Wild and his award-winning Salmon recipe. And it’s not just the food that is interesting about Wild as he could be in for some of the most significant playing time of his career.

Finally, the guys clean up their knowledge about the Galaxy’s involvement in bringing an NWSL team to Los Angeles.

It’s a packed show, and hopefully, we’re bringing you just a little bit of entertainment during these uncertain times!

Let’s go!
