Some are traveling, others are still playing, and one Colorado Rapid got married!

Over the last couple months, Rapids Rabbi and I have been scouring the internet on a regular basis for rumors and news bites, which (at least on my part) has including keeping up with the guys’ social media posts. Sometimes you learn some fun facts about your favorite player(s), and sometimes you find out that they are pretty much ready to leave the team.

The technical staff has been hard at work scouting talent and attending the draft, Rapids President Tim Hinchey earned Executive of the Year honors from both Mile High Sports and MLS, and Micheal Azira has been playing for his country. Beyond that, here’s what some of the other Burgundy Boys have been up to.

First, the most exciting news is that Jared Watts got married - Congratulations Jared & Ali!!!!

Meanwhile, Gashi has been spending his time riding 4-wheelers through the desert...

Dennis Castillo is also hanging out in the tropics, celebrating the new year in Costa Rica.

Tim Howard has been spending quality time with his kids, and supporting his favorite handegg* team, the Giants. Well, until they lost to Green Bay ;) *credit to @storminmay for introducing me to the term ‘handegg’
