ESPN Does Not Like The Rapids, Will Not Show Them In 2013

USA TODAY Sports

ESPN will be showing 19 games in 2013. The Rapids aren't involved in any of those games.

Do you like the Colorado Rapids?

Do you have ESPN?

Do you enjoy watching the Colorado Rapids on ESPN?

Well, that's too bad. ESPN will be showing 19 games on the network in 2013, and exactly zero of them will involve the Rapids.

To the surprise of absolutely nobody, the teams that are represented the most on ESPN's MLS broadcasts will be the LA Galaxy and the New York Red Bulls, with healthy dashes of the Seattle Sounders and Portland Timbers -- indeed, the first game to be broadcast will be the Timbers taking on the Red Bulls!

Despite not being shown on Bristol's finest, the Rapids will still be on national TV a couple of times over the course of the year, so if you can't get out to DSGP, don't want to buy MLS Live and are too lazy to come out to a viewing party, there will at least be something for you!
