Pat and Alex talk about the Fire’s 1-0 win over D.C. United, what to expect vs. Houston Dynamo, the latest on Shaqiri and Torres’ injuries, the Gaga Slonina to Chelsea deal, and our sadness that Chicago will not be a World Cup host city.

(Our normal showtime fell during the CHGO White Sox tailgate, so enjoy a special audio only edition of the pod this week. We’re back in studio next week, Wednesday at 12:15. Join us on YouTube!)
