On a slight tangent, thank you to everyone who came out to our San Francisco podcast last night. It was a pleasure meeting so many podcast listeners for the first time in person, as well as seeing some faces of old. Stay safe if you’re attending tonight’s match.
We will have you covered, as always, with post-game stuff.
