Whether or not MLS really kicks off this weekend, it's been one hell of a run up to today.

The Frank Lampard Saga had everything. Joy. Hope. Disappointment. Lies. Misery. A transatlantic tug-of-war. A speechless Jose Mourinho. Confused Chelsea fans, and even more confused NYCFC supporters. Yes, whether we like it or not, this is the defining story of NYCFC's history up to this point.

And Hudson River Blue is here to strangle that story in the bathtub.


Stay tuned for updates on iTunes and Stitcher Radio availability! In the meantime, we will be hosting all SPHERICAL content here on HRB and on the SPHERICAL SoundCloud page.
