New, 18 comments

So the Rapids had a game on Saturday. We played Seattle. It was cool.

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

The Colorado Rapids and Seattle Sounders got together for the first time in 2016 at Dick's Sporting Goods Park on Saturday night and it was under blissfully peaceful skies.  The Rapids were looking for their third win in a row and the Sounders were looking to continue their good run of form.  But then this happened:

WE BEAT SEATTLE.  AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
