Cedar Rapids Public Library
Hear about this weekend’s groundbreaking of the new Cedar Rapids Public Library and
what the future holds for the library and it’s patrons.
Carol will tell us about the summer reading program , the Out Loud Author series and how the library can assist job seekers.
Come on in tonight as Sonny Clark and Roger Noriega bring you the play by play of the United Conference Championship Game!
Cedar Rapids Titans vs Sioux Falls Storm
The Titans are trying to dethrown the Current multi-time IFL United Bowl Champions Sioux Falls Storm tonight.
See if the Titans can bring down the best team in the IFL (Storm) for the past 4 seasons!
The 2014 FIFA World Cup has officially kicked off! Brazil and Croatia played a game that could best be described as 'ruined completely by the referee' to start things off today, and Ben and myself will surely have a few words about that one, along with the rest of the WC and our predictions for the US Men's National Team.
Besides that, the Rapids lost a match against FC Dallas last weekend that we'll get around to, and there might be some time for Open Cup chat as well? Who knows anymore with us.
When's the last time we had a win this good to digest on the Rapids Thugcast? The Montreal Impact came to Dick's Sporting Goods Park last weekend and were toasted by Dillon Powers and the Colorado Rapids, 4-1. Good stuff all around, and a huge three points. Theres another match against the Dynamo coming up this weekend, and we'll also chat about the US Men's National Team (We haven't gotten the chance yet!) and tonight's Open Cup match between the Rowdies and Lions on the Thugcast tonight.
We spent the majority of our time in the last two episodes talking about the World Cup, and that's probably a pattern that will remain true tonight. The USA have worries about getting to the next round because Michael Bradley is a jerky-jerk, and big bad Germany stand in their way tomorrow.
I guess we'll also talk about the Colorado Rapids' spectacular something-or-other that transpired against the Atlanta Silverbacks. Do we really have to, though? I think we'd all be better off if we just went on with our lives.
We're here early this week! We saw a fantastic showing against the Houston Dynamo last weekend, and there's a quick turnaround to a game against the Chicago Fire. Though our shows are usually on Wednesdays, we decided to push our schedule up a day in order to bring the Rapids Thugcast to town before the Chicago match. We'll talk up the Rapids' Dynamo performance and the underperforming tendencies of the Fire. Quincy Amarikwa's 'grit' and 'hustle' will likely make an appearance.
Oh yeah, and the USMNT played another game. That might come up with the World Cup only a short time away!
Come on in as Minor League Football Hall of Fame broadcaster Sonny Clark as he brings you the play-by-play action of the...
2-5 Texas Revolution vs. 7-1 Cedar Rapids Titans
It's still World Cup time, and all of our predictions are still looking decent, though that might be because most of the teams have only played one game. We'll find time to talk about all sorts of World Cup material after an incredibly exciting first round of matches on this week's Rapids Thugcast.
In more Rapids-centric news, the burgundy boys played Orlando City SC in the US Open Cup yesterday, earning a lovely 5-2 win off the back of a Deshorn Brown hat trick. Does Pablo play another first-choice team next week against the Atlanta Silverbacks?

Ladies and Gentelmen, I introduce to you the one and only Commissioner Senita Lenear!
On today's World Footprints radio show we will take flight across America with pilot Field Morey as he prepares for his Capital Air Tour. Field and fellow pilot Conrad Teitell are embarking on an adventurous flight in a small aircraft to all the state capitals in the United States lower 48 plus Alaska in only two weeks. The pilots plan to raise awareness about the importance of smaller airports to the tourism industry and to provide a virtual geography lesson to school children across America.
We will also enjoy some time in middle America; namely Ohio, as we enjoy a walk through the roller coaster capital of the world--Cedar Point. This Sandusky landmark is a place that holds special memories for us because every childhood summer was spent daring ourselves to ride the latest roller coaster. This visit was no different because the Park's Bryan Edwards led us to an old favorite--The Blue Streak; and we enjoyed soaring through the air on the newest giant--The Gatekeeper. Enjoy exploring the "best amusement park in the world" with us.
Finally, one of the decisive battles in the War of 1812 took place in Lake Erie's Put-In-Bay where Commodore Olivr Hazard Perry captured the British squadron and raised the now famous "Don't Give Up The Ship" flag on board the US Brig Niagara. National Park Ranger Marianne Duvendack takes us on a tour around the International Peace Monument and shares more about Ohio's role in the War of 1812.
