It's finally happened-- World Cup call ups have happened. What will that mean for the Thorns facing Orlando? And what happened in New Jersey? Why does John use so many mixed metaphors? Join Patrick, Richard, John and (drumroll please) Shannan for the newest episode of Riveting!
The Rose City Riveters and the Timbers Army recently decorated what were once sterile visitation rooms at the Department of Human Services with team colors, toys, games and other things to make the experience more positive for the children involved. Capo Alex Staller was one of the people involved, and while showing the room to Mark Parsons, Adie Franch and Meghan Cox after its completion ended up playing FIFA 16 on XBOX with the team...well, just listen to hear the story. It's pretty...
Despite concerns, the Thorns triumphed over the Western New York Flash...I mean, the North Carolina Courage. We discuss the match with Richard Hamje and special guest Kay Hudson, as well as taking advantage of her homeland to pick her brain about the Australian W-League.
Gwyneth Defriez and Dakota Todd join Patrick this week to talk a little bit about the Dash vs Thorns match, Carli Lloyd's unwillingness to understand what constitutes a red card as well as a conversation about why She Who Will Not Be Named never quite fit in with Portland fans. Both Gwyn and Dakota are originally from England, and so we end up exploring how soccer (or football) is viewed in each country.
Well, we had to wait for it, but finally the match arrived, the field wet, Carli Lloyd ready for fouls and the Thorns never giving up. Once the game is posted online, you can replace the crappy Go90 announcers with us instead for rewatching the match. With Richard and Jeanette Hamje. NOTE: Halftime break has been edited out.

An audio diary of the bus trip (aboard the cider bus) and game day experience at the Seattle Reign vs Portland Thorns match on Saturday, July 1st, 2017. Contains some NSFW language and a lot of supporter spirit.
An unedited archived live stream of Riveting's commentary on the Washington Spirit vs the Portland Thorns. An all in the family commentary with Patrick and Teressa, Richard and Jeanette, plus occasional background chewing sounds from Walter and Marlowe. Visit our website for a video of the game synced to this commentary. For external use only. Visit a doctor if your excitement exceeds 4 hours.
Patch Perryman and Richard Hamje join Patrick to talk about the subpar result vs Sky Blue FC. There is also some talk of the tifo, the Riveters themselves (and their merch) as well as Pride. (We do recognize the irony of three straight cis white men recording this episode).
Due to scheduling conflicts, we weren't able to get the podcast out before the game vs Sky Blue, so we just went ahead and put both of the match reports together in one episode! This episode Patrick is joined by Jeanette "Bitmangler" Hamje and Richard "Here a Lot" Hamje.
Despite a hard fought battle, the Thorns aren't going to be heading to Houston after all. Join us as we drink some beers, examine the "quality" reffing and chat with Roscoe Myrick of the Portland Timbros about why it was still a great game.
