Conor Casey, our old friend, is finally going to play a match against the Rapids. I know my heartstrings are tugging. Aside from him, the Rapids have what seems like an easy enough job against one of the worst defenses in Major League Soccer today, though we all know how hard it seems to be for these guys to finish plays.
Last season the Rapids dropped a home game to the Union. Let's hope the Rapids can return the favor this year -- the three points they would get out of it would be immensely useful.
