Scoreline Gets Ugly as Rapids Can’t Capitalize Against SKC

By Brian Jennings The sixth minute in Sunday night’s match between Colorado and Sporting Kansas City was telltale on how the match would eventually play out for the visiting Rapids.  Eric Miller found Marlon Hairston running at goal before trying to pick out Dominque Badji with a low cross but it skidded just in front…

Pre-Game: @ Sporting KC

by Brendan Wyatt It’s game day once again, it might just be me but it seemed like there was a mini off-season.  The Rapids haven’t played a legit game since March 18th and with what the players and coaches are saying, we shouldn’t be too concerned with the gap in competitive play.  A lot has…

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…
