“Having a friendship that has spanned more than 25 years, there are so many topics surrounding soccer that we have yet to discuss and that we can bring a unique insight,” said Dellacamera.
Stamford, CT (PRWEB) September 21, 2016
ONE World Sports, America’s Network for Global Sports, announces the debut of JP & Shep – Soccer’s Pod Couple. A production of ONE World Sports Originals, JP & Shep – Soccer’s Pod Couple features premier soccer commentators and longtime friends JP Dellacamera and Shep Messing in a bantering of wits as they delve into topics surrounding the beautiful game. JP & Shep - Soccer’s Pod Couple can be downloaded from ONEWorldSports.com and Apple’s itunes.
Dellacamera and Messing serve as the play-by-play voice and analyst for the New York Cosmos for ONE World Sports. One of the most authoritative voices in professional soccer today, Dellacamera has served as play-by-play commentator for eight consecutive Men’s World Cups for both television and radio and five Women’s World Cups including in 1999 and 2015 with two U.S. wins. He has also been behind the microphone for three Olympic Games (2004, 2008, 2012). Dellacamera currently serves as the play-by-play voice for the Philadelphia Union and a contributing play-by-play commentator for FOX Sports’ soccer broadcasts as well as a radio co-host for Sirius XM soccer shows.
“Having a friendship that has spanned more than 25 years, there are so many topics surrounding soccer that we have yet to discuss and that we can bring a unique insight,” said Dellacamera. “Despite having two completely different personalities, JP & Shep – Soccer’s Pod Couple, which initially launched under the name JP & Shep – Unleashed, is our opportunity to spotlight our passion for the game and share our collective experiences with those who appreciate the sport as much as we do.”
Dellacamera is joined on the podcast by former New York Cosmos goalkeeper Shep Messing who has championed five teams in 15 years as a member of both the Cosmos and the New York Arrows of the Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL). A member of the 1972 U.S. Olympic team that competed in Munich and a two time All-American at Harvard, Messing has served as color analyst for TV and radio calling four Men’s World Cups and two Olympic Games. Messing also currently works as a color analyst for MSG’s coverage of the New York Red Bulls.
“Soccer has provided so much for me as both a player and now a commentator,” added Messing. “I view this podcast as two spirited individuals providing an educated, opinionated and sometimes funny analysis of soccer in the U.S., how it compares globally and avenues needed to see it become the premier sport in this country.”
Dellacamera and Messing have discussed topics ranging from the return of Landon Donovan, whether or not we'll ever see promotion and relegation in U.S. Soccer, the continued discussion over kneeling during the national anthem and so much more. A new episode of JP & Shep - Soccer’s Pod Couple is available every Tuesday on ONEWorldSports.com and Apple’s itunes.
