Where do you go from having Will Ferrell as your first guest in your debut podcast? For the Shootin’ The Shot podcast, there’s only one guest that can top will. Jordan and Larry welcomed LAFC captain, MLS Golden Boot winner, and reigning MVP Carlos Vela as a special guest in Episode 2.
The guys talk with Carlos for over an hour and topics range from family to travel to, of course, football.
But right off the top, Carlos has a huge announcement for the guys. We found out just a little bit ago that Carlos and his wife were expecting their second child. Jordan and Larry congratulate Carlos and ask if he wants to have a boy or a girl.
After teasing the guys a bit, Carlos lets it out. You’ll have to listen to the podcast to find out if it’s a boy or a girl.
Then it’s on to a variety of topics. The guys talk about staying fit in quarantine, what they thought of “The Last Dance” and Michael Jordan, and Carlos talks about his time in Europe – you won’t want to miss “Start, Bench, Cut” featuring cities Carlos played in. And they wrap it all up with a song. Again, you’ll have to listen to find out.
