Interested. Damn straight. For us, this is like finding the Ten Commandments somewhere in Sinai.
German lineup for Sunday.
Fox Soccer’s Warren Barton joined the Men in Blazers on this morning’s SiriusXM show from the rainy streets of London to help preview Saturday’s Champions League final. Barton will call the game from Wembley alongside Gus Johnson — Dortmund v. Bayern, 2:00pm ET Saturday on FOX.

Grüß Gott, great friends of the pod.
We’re only days away from Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, and their legions of supporters descending on London for the all-German Champions League final. And to help contextualize the occasion, the Men in Blazers welcome everybody’s favorite German, Dirk Nowitzki for a special, extended interview. Dirk offers Michael and Roger his thoughts on the Mavericks’ footballing equivalent, what Mark Cuban can learn from Dortmund, Jurgen Klinsmann’s Teutonic streak, and ultimately weighs in on LeBron James’s questionable claims to the beautiful game.
One would expect the rest of the pod to be devoted to the final weekend of the English Premier League. But one would be wrong. Though the pod was a timeless classic, due to some technical difficulties, it’s gone on to podcast heaven. May it rest it peace.
All American football players are welcome in the temple of soccer. Even 300-lb offensive lineman.
We love Landon. Few athletes in sport would be bold enough to be shot like this, however great the cause.

One from the archives… Congratulations, Rango Moyes.
The one and only.
There’s too much football, so says MLS commissioner Don Garber. But for the Men in Blazers, there’s not hardly enough. In this week’s pod, Michael and Roger consider it all — from these fine shores to Prussian dominance on the continent — before returning to recent developments in the English Premier League. It’s around the football world in 60 minutes of suboptimal podding.
We start things off in the US of A, dateline 2013. Michael and Roger hail the reported news that MLS will soon welcome a proper oil sheik to its mix of owners — all it needs now is a Russian oligarch with an affinity for miniature giraffes to be considered a bona fide top flight. And in keeping with the Stars ’n’ Stripes palette, Good Morning America’s Josh Elliott returns to the pod to discuss the agony and fleeting ecstasy of being an Arsenal supporter. Though he’s a recent convert, his apocalyptic prescription for the season’s conclusion shows he’s true Gunner through and through.
