    Nope. Not in the least. And I’m sure Tesho received the highest marks possible. Great family. When Tesho was in high school, his family lived down the street from me in Thornton. Although..... I mad at his Dad. He made a horrible call in the last minute of a President Cup Group match against my team last weekend. It cost us big time! After the match, I think he was thinking I was going to ream his ass, instead I just asked him how Tesho was doing, how good he thinks Orlando will be, and said I’m always rooting for Tesho. We laughed and had a quick little 5 minute catch-up chat. Tesho and the whole family are so humble and kind. Always rooted so hard for him and hope one day he can wear the burgundy kit.

    Montreal will be based in Ft. Lauderdale and play at Inter Miami's DRV PNK Stadium;
    Toronto will stay outside of Orlando and host most games at Orlando City's Exploria Stadium;
    Vancouver will be in the Salt Lake City area and play matches at Real Salt Lake's Rio Tinto Stadium.

    -Someone said this was pulled from The Athletic

    Completely didn't know Canada still had borders closed resulting in this again.

    Nice, I'd be curious what you think. Their previous stadium was pretty poor (but fun) but this looks like a showcase for the USL.

    The stadium is a real beauty. Cool neighborhood for it too. I definitely get back there, but perhaps after the road work on I-25 is done. Do one of the colleges play there as well?

    By the way, Fairview won! State champs, woohoo! A thrill for my boy in his COVIID dominated senior year. And my last youth type soccer game as a parent!

    As a Rapids fan who lived in the Springs, I know the joy of I-25 well, especially the point south of Castle Rock where the lanes narrow! Unsure if the colleges play there but with the stadium on the West side, I imagine CC and UCCS will start playing there.

    Congrats to Fairview!

    I haven't heard anything about either college playing at the Switchbacks stadium. TBH I doubt if either will, since both have adequate places to play on campus.

    I heard last year that the DII championships would be here this December. Don't know if that has changed.

    I'll be honest, I don't know much about the soccer programs at CC or UCCS, do they have stadiums on campus?

    Perhaps one of the best interactions between a sports team and a fan:

    For those that don't know, Twitter user BuckArmy was the Rapids first eMLS player. They were doing a signed jersey giveaway to a random follower of his, so I gave him a follow a couple years back and never unfollowed. Turns out this was a good idea....

    Here's some highlights of the twitter thread that unfurled live before me on Twitter that has now since made NATIONAL news:







    This made headlines at ESPN, Sports Illustrated, etc, etc, and even got them a local news interview as well:

    https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id...-arizona-diamondbacks-game-captivates-twitter



    Long story short, BuckArmy's friend was on a 2nd date and Buck didn't believe the seats he claimed to have.

    So, he tweeted at the Arizona Diamondbacks to see if they could pan the camera up and he could catch them on the TV and see how the date was going. Well, the DBacks took it a step further and not only did they end up on TV, but they got gameballs, shown on the jumbotron, and now millions of people nationwide have gotten to join in on the fun that was had.

    The back and forth on Twitter was absolutely hilarious and I would definitely recommend anyone go and read the whole thing.

    To be fair though, Buck and the team got a bit lucky. This thing could have gone disastrously wrong. We look at it now for the fun it was and everyone is smiling so its all good.

    They do. CC's teams play in what used to be the carryball stadium. UCCS has a small stadium off Nevada. I've coached a few youth matches there.

    RIP Crew and welcome Columbus SC

    The Rapids are now one of four original '96 names left in the league (Galaxy, Revs, United)

    This "rebrand" is completely confusing:







    So, they are "The Crew"? Or are they "Columbus SC"? Or is it both? Is it neither? Is it "Columbus Crew"? Is it "Columbus Crew SC"?

    Who knows. I don't even think the Columbus ownership group knows.

    It's a dumb logo too.

    If they would have come up with a really good crest, people would've been able to live with it. If they would have just kept the Crew name, people would've been able to live with it. It had to be one or both. The fact they accomplished neither, and actually paid someone monetary compensation for, and later approved, such an ugly, confused, and soulless logo is impressive.

    At least there isn't another Black w/ Gold trim team with an angular logo -- would just be lazy to copy that:
