The New York Cosmos are headed to the post season, and despite all the possibilites as the fall portion of the campaign progressed, the road to the finals goes through New York.
After the Cosmos surpassed the Ottawa Fury on the final day of the regular season, they will now play host for the NASL Playoff semi-finals at MCU Park in Brooklyn, and should they move on to the finals, will also get to play the last game of the season at home.
This week our hosts Ej Garr and Frank Dell'Apa get us ready for the post-season, with a recap of the spring and fall seasons that has gotten us to this point of campaign.
Our guest this week is Cosmos keeper Kyle Zobeck, who already has earned hardware this season with the Cosmos B squad under Alecko Eskandarian in their first season playing in the NPSL. We surprise Kyle with a call from his college coach from Valparaiso Mike Avery during the interview.
The Cosmos will kick off the semifinals at 2 PM ET at MCU Park adjacent to Coney Island, so make sure you secure your tickets early.

Professor Michael Perlin, professor at New York Law School states: "A stinging indictment of the death penalty system, focusing most closely and importantly on the role of the media, and, especially, the moral corruption that permeates many of the prosecutors' offices that regularly do death penalty cases. A must-read for anyone intersted in this topic." http://www.elizabethkelleylaw.com.

The term Internet of Things (IoT) is relatively new and one we are going to be hearing a lot more about. Consider this; currently there are more wireless devices than there are people. The plus side is, of course, all of the great things we can do with this connectivity. The bad side is, at what risk? Recently 104,000 IRS records were breached. Are patient healthcare accounts secure? These, and questions like them, will need answers as we continue the evolution to a 'connected society'.
