Welcome to the Crown & Anchor, Greyhounds! In this episode Christian and Brett have a conversation about Ted Lasso with the legenderary fomer Major League Soccer star Jimmy Conrad!
Jimmy is a former professional soccer player, who played 26 games with the US Men’s National Team and 12 seasons in Major League Soccer, where he was named to the MLS Best XI on four occasions and won the MLS Cup with the Kansas City Wizards in 2004.
Jimmy hung up his cleats in 2011, but has continued his career in sports media as a host and analyst since then. Currently, he co-hosts the CBS Sports podcast In Soccer We Trust alongside his pals (and former Men’s National Teamers) Charlie Davies and Heath Pearce.
In addition to his hosting duties, Jimmy oversees a production company called Radical Creative Group as well as the ever-growing community of do-gooders known simply as the “Warmballers.” He also currently serves as the Sporting Director for the San Francisco Glens Soccer Club.
Of course, Jimmy’s a massive fan of Ted Lasso, too. So we invited him on the show to talk about Ted, Jose Mourinho, Zlatan, MLS, the US National Team, warm balls, and lots, lots more.
