AY! WE BACK! Courtney & André hopped on the mics once again and had a LOT to cover. We start with a very kind review (please leave yours bestie thaaaaank yooou) before moving on to some quick shoutouts before getting to the real real.

We start by wrapping up the UWCL semifinal round in which Wolfsburg beat Barcelona but the Spanish juggernauts moved to the final with a 5-2 aggregate win. Then we talk about the two-legged banger that was Lyon vs. PSG, which Lyon won 5-3 on aggregate. We give our predictions for the UWCL Final (Barcelona v. Lyon, in Turin, Italy, Saturday, May 21, @ 1pm ET), then talk about the slight possibility for the end of the D1 Arkema season to get funky.

After, we turn our attention stateside to get into the NWSL Sippy Cup, starting with the first half of the Challenge Cup Final (which was good), then discuss the second half (which wasn't). We explain how the match devolved into an avoidable mess of the NWSL's own making and break down the issues that led to a deeply uncomfortable second half (get well soon Kerolin and Jordan Baggett). We also review the Sippy Cup Awards, including Debinha winning MVP and who we think should've made the All Tournament Team.

Finally, André takes you through the absolute banger matchups in NWSL Week 3/2.5/2.38(?) including a Friday the 13th Cascadia Rivalry, Gotham versus North Carolina (don't miss Courtney & André's discussion about NJ/NY), and Christen Press coming to Washington! We then roll into Heated & Hyped where Courtney drags ESPN FC's Twitter account and André is in his feelings about Kevin Durant joining Gotham as a minority owner.

Please listen, subscribe, rate and review – we appreciate y'all!
