This week on #IntotheCosmos, your hosts Ej Garr and Frank Dell'Apa review the big 3 - 2 win for the Cosmos this past weekend over Tampa Bay, which offered plenty of action on the pitch, as well as off of it. Emotions were at a peak at Shuart Stadium this past Saturday, for not only the players but the managers as well. Colin Campbell was sent off the pitch for arguing with the officials, and Coach Gio was more than critical of the referee with his halftime comments. This week the guys welcome back Jimmy Mulligan to the show, as the Medford, Long Island native recently returned to the Cosmos after a stint on loan with Swope Park of the USL. Jimmy had an influence on the second goal for the Cosmos that tied the match at the time against Tampa, sending a brilliant cross in to the box that eventually led to a Cosmos penalty kick conversion from Adam Moffat, his second of the match. The Cosmos make their first trek to Puerto Rico this weekend for their match with the expansion side, hoping to re-produce a similar result to their first meeting this year, in which the Cosmos came away with three points.
