The Cooligans are a couple of soccer-obsessed NYC-area comedians who’ve parlayed their love of footie into a popular (and often hysterically funny) podcast.

They spoke to Marc about Round 1 of this season's MLS rivalry between the Red Bulls and NYCFC, explained why calling the local showdown “The NY Derby” won’t be replaced anytime soon by “The Big Apple Classico,” and paid homage to a familiar personality from 1010 WINS’ historic past.
