Off-weeks are great for catching your breath, catching up with old friends, and making new ones. In studio, we have Head Coach of the Kitsap Pumas, Liviu Bird, and Assistant Coach (and friend of show) Shannon Matthews! Before coaching, Liviu wrote for Sports Illustrated, The Telegraph, and Sounder at Heart. He's made some splashes, and is relishing his current role as a full time youth & professional coach The boys from Bremerton are looking to make noise this year! Liviu & Shannon help break down some recent news, and then we get a deep dive into the mind of an analyst-turned-coach -- what drives some of the dynamics on the field, in the locker room, and the challenges & decisions that land on his very complex role. A huge welcome back to Kevin, who was able to break free for a night and hang with the B-Team! (We're better with you, buddy!) We hope you have as much fun as we did!
