Rapids Humbled at Home, Apologize to Fans

By Brian Jennings Rapids fans filed into Dick’s Sporting Goods Park to hopefully see their side take down arch rival RSL Saturday night, while looking for, albeit far-fetched, a 4-goal victory to bring home the Rocky Mountain Cup for the first time in many years.  Instead, those that remained the full 90+ minutes witnessed a…

Kellyn Acosta Joins Burgundy from Rival FC Dallas

Game Preview: Rapids V RSL

Game Preview: Rapids v Dynamo

by Brendan Wyatt The Houston Dynamo are in town as the Colorado Rapids look to not only bounce back from the loss in Montreal, but an overall bad week.  MLS drama can easily spill off the pitch and for the Rapids it’s been hard to shake all season.  Houston hasn’t shown to do very well…
