Seattle Sounders 1 Colorado Rapids 0 - A perfect 2012 repeat

Colorado lost their sixth game in a row, mirroring July of 2012 perfectly with a 1-0 loss against the Sounders.

In July of 2012, the Colorado Rapids had what I deemed 'Hell Month', which ended in an 0-6-0 record for Oscar Pareja's struggling squad. In August of 2014, I similarly dubbed a 'Hell Month', and they've ended it in the same fashion that they ended July of 2012 -- with a loss to the Sounders and a 100% loss record. Funny enough, this was actually not a horrible game, putting it into context.

Today, Pablo Mastroeni decided to go full-on troll mode, starting Joe Nasco in goal and Thomas Piermayr at center back, meaning that the Rapids had two right backs at center back alongside a left back at right back. Hilariously, this ended up resulting in one of the best games the Rapids had played in over a month. Defensively, they were moderately stout, and offensively they actually managed to hold the ball somewhat well for a few stretches.

Unfortunately, the patent-pending Rapids lol-offense couldn't score any goals during the game -- I assume they wasted their month's allocation on the five scored in the past two games -- and conceded to Clint Dempsey on a set-piece in the second half. Unfortunately, that was all that it took to keep the Rapids at bay for the rest of the evening.

I have nothing else to say about it, honestly.
