Some other soccer news happened on Sunday

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Rumor has it the Colorado Rapids had a big announcement on Sunday.

And while it will be four months before Tim Howard joins the Rapids, there were some other soccer items of note on Sunday, specifically USMNT head coach Jurgen Klinsmann naming his 26 man roster for the two World Cup Qualifiers against Guatemala (featuring Rapids midfielder Marco Pappa).

In case you forgot, the USMNT is in the middle of World Cup Qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.  They have two big matches against Guatemala:
