Are you ready to watch the San Jose Earthquakes? Yeah, neither am I. The Quakes are nearly always unbearable to play against for multiple reasons. Colorado, however, is doing very well in the early goings this season and have a slightly more hard-nosed type coach in Pablo Mastroeni than they did back when Oscar Pareja was coach. Pareja's Rapids went 0-5-1 against the Quakes, which you might recognize as a very, very bad record.
Let's see if we'll start to see a change in fortunes against a Quakes side that really isn't all that good right now. If so, the Rapids could be 4-1-1 against tough competition to start the year. Come on you Rapids!
