Bailamos, Blue Ballers! with twenty goals worth celebrating across the last week we certainly have something to dance about and Jake and Trey do that dance in style. FIRST, a review of a seven goal rout against Cincy, including five goals scored BOTFOT! (By our team for our team, no bootleg). Then, talking points on Keats, Sands, and the dramatic difference between Boys and Girls on the national stage. Finally; the young guns take up the mantle as the most meaningless competition in us soccer - the US OPEN CUP - looms on the horizon. We predict chaos. Button up for company - you’ve got Blue Balls.
One for all and all for four! Our Women of the stars and stripes are going for back to back World Cup titles, so why not have two dudes tell you what they will be looking for when the USA kicks off in France? Mike from the esteemed Blue City Radio joins Trey to preview the strengths, weaknesses, roster battles, and story lines to watch for in this exciting month, while stitching in player interviews from the USWNT World Cup media day of recent. Dive in and strap on that blind patriotism, cause you've got red, white, and blue balls. (Big special thanks to Blue City Radio for setting this special ep up and chopping it together!)
Ching Ching, Blue Ballers, and welcome to another week of podorotic asphyxiation. This week we dig into a surprisingly disappointing draw against Chicago and get to the bottom of what stymied the creativity of an injuryless squad. Then: world cups abound, boots on the ground, and the fabulous sound. Also, when do they get the hats? Don’t ask without saluting — you’ve got Blue Balls.
Salutations and salvations, Blue Ballers! This week in a not-quite-flash episode Trey and Jake do a roster rundown of all the major names in NYCFC’s highly heartening 2-0 away win against the LA Zlatans. We cover Maxi, Heber, Treats & Keats, and of course the choke heard round the world. Then: national team news, soccer across the pond, end-career Titans, and a brief Chicago precap. You’re gonna want boxers, not briefs: you’ve got Blue Balls.
Hello hello mes petits choux, and welcome to our first special episode of Season Five!
We are more than lucky and deserving to have on the pod Dan Kennedy, MLS veteran goalkeeper and all around good dude.
Dan joins Trey to discuss his career arc from Chivas USA to FC Dallas to the LA Galaxy, the current status of the LA Galaxy and what NYCFC fans should expect this weekend, and what Sean Johnson has in common with ketchup.
Special thanks to Dan Kennedy for spending his time with us, and the Bleav podcast network!
Get ready for a dispersal draft, cause you've got Blue Balls.
Ahoy-hoy bb’ers and welcome to another week of Blue Balls. Jake and Trey burn through several Svedka-fueled hot takes and cold shoulders, recalling Dome’s star turn in the Montreal match as well as Champions league shenanigans and the loss of the loosest lips in the locker room to Colorado. Plus: USWNT rapid fire roster talk, and a LA precap upcoming later this week. Don’t sneeze so hard - you’ve got Blue Balls!
Or "in which our heroes refuse to forget that until recently we had won three games in five months of play."
Welcome back to hog heaven, Blue Ballers, as NYCFC reclaims their rightful mantle as scariest team in the east, taking 7 points in 7 days and only by the capriciousness of God losing out on those final two agains Orlando. Or, maybe not.
Jake and Trey resolve to review all three matches by basically reviewing none of them and talking about how to pronounce Héber’s name until a solvent offensive strategy finally materializes. Talk about Maxi, the missing Keaton sparks, Ofori’s O-Phoenix-esque sophomore year, and some other stuff. Then: talking points and a Montreal precap. Squeeze those knees and don’t say please: you’ve got Blue Balls.
Happy Easter and a Solemn & Reflectful Passover, Blue Ballers, and welcome to a true blitz week of NYCFC. Trey and Jake have a diner dash mini ep for you today recorded at neighborhood watering hole DADDY-O - where we broke down Minnesota, Shradi, Maxi’s return and the ongoing Dome Outroversy. Then Trey pontificates about champions league and Jake says some totally uninformed bullshit about soccer journalism. Plus a three-game precap for the long week ahead. Lace up your shoes right - you’ve got Blue Balls.
Venmo Vidi Vici, blue ballers and welcome to another week. Jake and Trey are back on mic, hoping against hope that a podcast bye-week would be just the thing to solve NYCFC’s maple woes. It was not. Recaps of Montreal and briefly Toronto, a series of full breakdowns, both mental and coaching, and a scary thought: what does it take to kill NYCFC? Then: grim prognostications for Grimnesota United. Don’t tuck and run - you’ve got Blue Balls.
Aloha BBers, and welcome to a bye week sigh week edition of Blue Balls. Recap of the LAFC game yields mixed results, with just as much to grin about as gripe about - including, but not limited to, a sweet Treat of a goal to open Mitrita’s account for NYCFC.
Then: Jake and Trey start to get bullish on Heber and talk the various analyses of the newly-signed Brazilian the FO seems hype to plug into the offense. Plus, the Yankees president tickles our Blue Balls with some stadium talk, and finally a precap summation of a Toronto match decimated by callups. Tell your friends and loved ones to stay out of your way - you’ve got Blue Balls.
