After Win Over Rivals RSL, Rapids Head to Dallas

Although the Rocky Mountain Cup was already lost when the Rapids hosted Real Salt Lake last weekend, the Pids were in it for glory. At kickoff, the Pid Army dropped a 6300 square foot tifo and the terraces were filled with banners and flags honoring their club, winless in six games, and at the final […]

Frustrations Mount for Rapids

Sometimes, I sit back and think “man, it’s great to be a Rapids fan.” Now is not one of those times. I have, admittedly, put off writing an update in hopes that my optimistic forecast coming off the Rapids’ 3-0 win in Portland might actually come to fruition. Time will tell, I said, whether the Rapids […]

A Rapids Catch Up and July 4th Preview

Anyone following the Rapids knows that the matches leading up to last Saturday’s meet up with Portland had not gone well. After expecting to come back from the (way too long) break rested and ready to take on Vancouver, and despite a solid effort in the first half, the Rapids ultimately fell 0-1 to a […]

Rapids Hit By Injury Crisis but Continue Winning

Before I even dive into some highlights from this week’s action, I first need to apologize for the delay (come on, who WASN’T distracted by all this US Open Cup action!?) and also take some time to overview the injuries that have drastically depleted the Rapids’ roster and impacted Colorado’s effectiveness on the field (even […]

Set Pieces Lead Rapids to Win Over Chivas USA

I’m sure you’ve heard by now, but the Rapids won this week. They didn’t just win; they shut out Chivas USA 4-0. It was an amazing win for the ‘Pids, but it wasn’t as easy as the score might suggest. Last week in my very brief thoughts going into this match, I said there were […]

Late PK Miss Spells Loss for Rapids

I will be the first to admit that the first 30 minutes or so of the Colorado Rapids vs LA Galaxy match this past weekend were hard to watch. Dicks Sporting Goods Park was at capacity (plus some additional standing room tickets, in my understanding) and the atmosphere was electric, which made the gaping holes […]

Can Rapids Figure Things Out as Galaxy Come to Town?

As a Rapids fan often involved in the Rapids’ fans’ chorus of “where is the Rapids’ media coverage!?” I should know better than to leave you guys hanging like I have. It hasn’t been deliberate. It’s more an issue of just not being able to figure out what is going on with this club. Two […]

Rapids Look to Get Back Rocky Mountain Cup

This is it, guys. The big one. Game One of the quest to reclaim the Rocky Mountain Cup. Rapids take on Real Salt Lake at Rio Tinto this Saturday, and in an analysis based purely on gut instinct, I think this year is the Rapids’ year. The boys in burgundy want the Cup back badly, […]

Rapids Open Season with Win, Now Travel to Face Union

Looking back on Colorado’s season opening win against Columbus, I can’t help but smile. What a match! The Rapids played a markedly different style of football than fans are used to seeing, and it paid off with the Rapids scoring two goals and leaving the pitch with three points. Coach Oscar Pareja played three guys […]

Pareja Set for Debut as Rapids Coach vs Crew

The Rapids head into their First Kick match against Columbus with some pretty decent stats on their side; in 17 overall meetings at Colorado, Columbus have taken away just three wins. The teams have met in the playoffs twice in as many years with the Rapids advancing both times, but as any soccer fan knows, […]

Colorado Rapids Season Preview

I’ve been waiting to write this because I’ve been waiting for things to stop changing in the 5280 (that’s fancy talk for Denver) for long enough that I might be able to write a decent season preview. I’ll give it a shot… Out With The Old… While a good number of people weren’t pleased with […]

Rapids Win Ugly, Look Ahead to Emotional Seattle Match

Well, the Rapids absolutely had to win vs. the Vancouver Whitecaps on 7/9 at home and thankfully, they did. It wasn’t pretty at times, Pablo Mastroeni, Koske Kimura and Jamie Smith all getting beat up a bit, but Colorado powered through. The Conor Casey goal showed he was back in his old form and very […]

Onward and Upward For The Rapids

What a crazy month for the Rapids, go from a 6 tie streak, and 8 game unbeaten streak to being dragged under the bus by the Galaxy and more recently the Crew. Disappointing losses that saw a 3-1 defeat followed by a 4-1 defeat, respectively.  Good news? Conor Casey is back and scoring 4 goals […]

Rapids Face Dynamo in Mid-Week Clash

This week the Rapids face the Dynamo at 8:30 PM MT on Houston’s home turf. Colorado is kicking off its first of three tough away games. Both had impressive highlights last game, with Houston’s Will Bruin blasting in a hat trick to lift them above DCU and Colorado’s Andre Akpan nabbing a goal of the […]
