"I think it's wild what's going on in the US Open Cup for USL teams and MLS teams (...) I know a lot of guys in MLS who used the Open Cup as a chance to get minutes, and now they're first-team main contributors. I know there's been a lot of USL teams that make those runs, and I'm sure some of those guys go on to get MLS contracts." In this episode, Herc had a candid conversation with John Tolkien, popularly known as JMi, and the left-back for the New York Red Bulls.
