Colorado Rapids vs. DC United - Game thread

It's gameday for the Rapids as they try to end a three-game losing skid against their final Eastern Conference competition of the season.

USA TODAY Sports

One of the absolute worst games of the Colorado Rapids' 2013 season was the 0-0 draw that we saw at Dick's Sporting Goods Park against Ben Olsen's dire DC United side. The Rapids got a ton of shots but couldn't seem to find the back of the net as former University of Denver man Joe Willis had heroics and goal and the Rapids' legendarily bad finishing had one of its lesser days.

Oh dear, this sounds familiar. Oh well, miracles happen sometimes, right? Maybe this is the time when the Rapids snap that losing streak and get themselves back into winning ways; with very few playoff spots looking on the line at this point in the West, there's not much time to pick up points.
