Episode 1: Bridget Callahan Interview and Gotham FC PreviewSkoPurp Soccer: An Orlando Pride PawedCast
Michael Citro and David Rohe host the inaugural episode of SkoPurp Soccer: An Orlando Pride PawedCast, a new podcast dedicated to the Orlando Pride of the National Women's Soccer League and women's soccer coverage. This maiden voyage explains the origin of the show's name and the guys discuss the play of the Pride players in international matches during this window. They also break down recent roster moves by the club, including Leah Pruitt's retirement and the signing of midfielder Thais Reiss.
Former Pride midfielder and current (injured) Central Florida Crusaders player Bridget Callahan is the show's first guest and it's appropriate because she popularized the term that gave the podcast its name (SkoPurp!). Bridget fills us in on the origin of the term, how she came to join the city's new indoor soccer team, her injury while playing goalkeeper (!) with the Crusaders, what she's up to now, and more.
There's some USWNT talk as Michael and Dave discuss the injury to Mallory Swanson against Ireland and the loss of her talents for the upcoming World Cup.
Finally, we break down the Pride's upcoming match against NJ/NY Gotham FC on Saturday night at Exploria Stadium, with our key match-ups and score predictions.
Here's how the show went down:
0:15 - Our first show, Pride players abroad, and recent roster moves.
23:33 - Bridget Callahan jumps on and we're not sure who was more stoked about her being on the show.
43:09 - What Mal Swanson's loss means for the USWNT and what we expect on Saturday night when the Pride host Gotham.
