Celebrating 10 years @ The Dick Part 3 (All-Star Game)

(The following is a reprint of a match report I published following the MLS All-Star game played at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in 2007.  As we celebrate the 10thanniversary of the first Rapids game played in Commerce City later this month, please enjoy part 2 of 3 in a series of my favorite moments from…

Parallel Pals

With another week off we start off the show discussing the best MLS action of the weekend.  The Loons got their first ever pro win against the hated Real Salt Lake, which still tastes pretty sweet to us.  LA blew a lead, JJ carded again and Houston slaughters the Red Bulls. But enough of those…

The Doldrums

The Colorado Rapids are on an early season hiatus, and The Voice of C38 is in the Doldrums. While we wait for more match action we discuss the best and worst stadiums in Major League Soccer.  Where have we traveled, where have we lived, and where do we plan to go next? We examine Minnesota…

Loonacy

The Colorado Rapids are Jesus.  Because they raised Minnesota United FC from the dead. If you’re still reeling from the fever dream that was a home draw with the Loons, then you’ll fit right in with this podcast. With guest Marco Cummings from Mile High Sports and MLS we try to find some optimism…like being…

Common Loons are Endangered

NYRBs are in the rear-view mirror and we’re looking to gain some GD ground against Minnesota United.  The Loons have had a nightmare introduction to the big boy club and the Rapids need to take full advantage before Adrian Heath figures out what’s going wrong. Real Minnesota Bayern United City Football Club will be playing…

New England, Old Scoreline

A great home win to open the season, but a familiar old scoreline. It was great to get back out to the Dick–even without some of the bigger name players available.  A disallowed Kevin Doyle goal kept the Pids at an eeking win, however, the Burgundy Boys did continue their home undefeated streak in classic…

Keg Cast: Padraig Smith

Rapids Sporting Director Padraig Smith joined us at the C38 Tailgate last week.  Who could ask for a better homeopener than that?    

Two, If By C(alvert)

The Revolution are coming! The Revolution are coming!…back for more punishment. The Revs fell to the Pids in the Desert Diamond Cup a scant two weeks ago. Their best efforts foiled by the league’s in-tact best defense, a brace by Caleb Calvert and a stoppage time beauty by Dom Badji. Will this be the regular…

Bellwethers

The 2017 season is so close we can taste it! The preseason in Tucson is going well.  Far better than last year’s DDC; but how much does that matter? We approach the Desert Diamond Cup with optimism but don’t put much stock in the results. The cast talks about indicators and players exploring positions. The…

Background Noise

The trip to LA is over, the trip to Tucson is upon us, but first the team had a rare media training session on the grounds at Commerce City.   Brian and Brendan were in attendance along with our special guest Marco Cummings, MLS writer/photographer.  They bring you the good news about Serna, some observations…
