Dallas scores a goal
The Rapids are pathetic
Dallas wins 2-1
It started off as nicely as any half really has for the Rapids, with Omar Cummings getting a lovely goal after a Rivero-esque pass from Conor Casey in the 50th minute. The rest of the game was pretty much the Rapids 2012 season in a nutshell.
* Solid attacking and confidence from the team after scoring a goal, even when the finishing wasn't all there? Check.
* Letting in a set piece goal because absolutely nobody was marking the target -- in this case Carlos Rodriguez? Check.
* Having absolutely none of that flair or confidence following a tying goal being scored, leading to a winner for the opposing team? (In this case, off a set of defensive lapses they let Fabian Castillo sneak one.) Check.
All right, I've hit my word quota, I'm off to go dance with a bottle of black rum.
