What's up Internet? Today on Last Word SC Radio, we're changing this up from our normal show. Matt Pollard sits down with Steve Bernasconi of The Soccer Tour for an interview pod special.
Steve has embarked on a season-long soccer roadtrip across North America. He will be attending at least one home game for every MLS team and a bunch of lower division and womens games. We caught up with Steve after 12 days in Colorado, his first soccer stop in the Mountain Time Zone.
We talk about how he came up with the idea for The Soccer Tour and how he planned it out. He explains some roadtrip, Starbucks, and 'Urban Camping' hacks to his journey. We discuss how he goes from stop to stop, how he gets by without 24/7 access to Wifi, and couch crashing with members of the Soccer Community. Steve goes in depth on how he's been embraced by the Soccer Community, how he's experienced the grass roots movement The Soccer Tour has attracted, and what he hopes to get out of it in the end.
The guys talk about the journey so far, his Colorado Experience, and what thinks of the current state of the Colorado Rapids, Denver, and the C38 Supporters Group experience.
We then go into some rapid fire stats questions to get a sense of how big his adventure is. We then have some fun with some 'Mid-Tour Awards.' (As of recording, these awards have not been officially endorsed by The Soccer Tour).
Enjoy the conversation and find out where you can learn more about Steve's journey and how you can get involved.
