    Episode 25- Transfer Deadline Day Special


    It's another week with this being a bit different of a show....because this only happens two times a year! The hectic schedule brought Adam into the studio by himself to bring you all the transfers that have gone down this month. Bryan had to catch a flight to Texas but have no fear, he was able to call in before he got on the plane : ) Lots to discuss with all the new faces in the Premier League. And same faces but in a different kit. Finally, a little tribute to Kobe Bryant who tragically died in a helicopter accident early Sunday morning. His impact on the game of soccer was immense and had many friends within the soccer community. The Kickin It Stateside boys send their thoughts and prayers to the Bryant family as well as the other families that were impacted by this tragic event. Love you guys!
