Yeah. The Rapids lost.

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The opening weekend in Major League Soccer is done and dusted and the weekend featured a loss by the Colorado Rapids and a whole lot of other drama.

Here are the stories we are following:

New York Red Bulls dropped their home opener to an inspired Toronto FC squad.  Drew Moor and Clint Irwin look OK in red.

The match of the day might have been in Chicago.  Wow.

LOL.  Real Salt Lake.  LOL

No excuse for Houston here.  Utter disaster at BBVA.

As expected, Philadelphia Union did not perform well on the road.

Portland Timbers opened their title defense with a hard fought victory over Columbus Crew SC.   Not sure if Portland repeats or not, but for this night....they were the best team in MLS.

Montreal Impact opened with a massive road win over Vancouver Whitecaps.  Well done!

Sporting Kansas City picked up a huge road win in Seattle who ended the match with 10 men.

LA Galaxy demolished D.C. United in the nightcap on Sunday night.  Yikes.  Those two teams would be the Rapids next opponents.
