Colorado Rapids vs. Portland Timbers - Game Thread

Let's see if we can get any comments in a game thread for a home game now!

Welcome to Matchday No. 2 of the Colorado Rapids season! We had a successful gamethread last week against the New York Red Bulls, so let's see if we can repeat the feat on a home game this time around. This week, we've got last year's Western Conference heavyweights, the Portland Timbers.

This year, the Timbers have looked a little more mortal than they did at times last year, and have seen both of their games end in 1-1 draws. Those games were both at home, as well. Combine that with what looks like some bad weather at Dick's Sporting Goods Park today, and you might have a recipe for a Rapids victory... assuming that they can overcome the loss of Chris Klute.

Colorado Rapids (0-0-1) vs. Portland Timbers (0-0-2)
