Getting Mad: Pilot Episode

MLS: Vancouver Whitecaps FC at Houston Dynamo FC Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

You can now watch the first episode of Getting Mad on Eighty Six Forever’s YouTube Channel. In this episode Caleb Wilkins breaks down the first 7 matches of the Vancouver Whitecaps season (something you were all clamouring for, I'm sure). The episode also features musical stings composed by Yumeka Hildreth and an unflattering impression of you.

The Whitecaps got off to a hot start before seemingly reverting to type by losing three games in a row. Is all lost or is this simply an illusion? All of this and more will be discussed in detail.

The episode begins with a discussion of how the Whitecaps’ midfield has improved (to a certain extent at least) and then explores why things still look so similar.

We then move on to discuss the need for a DP #10 (I mean, how could you not?) and why the Whitecaps improved defence is an illusion.

This is then followed by a discussion of how the new recruiting team gives me hope for the future and the future of Marc Dos Santos.

In the final act we talk about getting mad for a good cause. Getting mad online is fun but at the end of the day it does not have much tangible effect on the world. One of the ways I have been trying to ensure that I do more than just get mad on the internet (and completely poison my brain by extension) is to donate to charitable organizations. This month I've chosen to give to Islamic Relief’s Palestine fund and to the Indian Residential School Survivors Society. Everyone is encouraged to shout out a cause that people can donate their time or their money.

Also I ask people to give feedback on the show in general. I’m experimenting with something new here so I want to hear what the people think.
