Well, that was one awful week for our Colorado Rapids. Two games that looked very winnable and we came out with zero points.
So, there's not much happy news around the internet this week about our Rapids. After the jump, you'll find your weekly links section.
I'm not usually a huge fan of the reporting on MLS, but I recently discovered their Soccer Statistics blog, and being a huge stats nerd in my day job, I absolutely love some of their recent posts! Check out the following two links if you are at all into numbers.
Quick and interesting piece. I never knew our broadcasters didn't travel. But then again, I never listen to the broadcast, just watch the away games in some noisy pub!
A great interview with Rapids new home grown player Shane O'Neill from the Longmont Times. I'm stoked to see a fellow Knight's Alum joining our 'Pids!
At least one Rapids team came off the week with a point!
Quakes Game Articles:
