The Crosstown Podcast: Copa América edition

On Friday, Juan Pimiento of The Man Uverse blog spent the evening at The PrivateBank Fire Pitch and caught the opening match of Copa América. The Chicago Fire hosted an epic watch party with approximately 2,000 U.S. and Colombian fans in attendance. (Here’s another photo gallery of the event.)

Before the game, Pimiento and I sat down to record the second edition of our Crosstown Podcast. We discussed Friday’s upcoming match between the U.S. and Colombia. In addition to Copa América, we touched base on the USWNT’s current financial situation (will they strike?), updates on the Chicago Fire, and the status of the Chicago Red Stars, as they USWNT prepare for the Olympics.

Until next time, stay up-to-date on the latest soccer news by following Pimiento and me on Twitter.
