Well, a fact that is well-known on these boards, Colorado, the Revolution, and the Metromutts are the only three teams in the MLS that do not possess a trophy, either a US Open Cup or MLS Cup (Miami and Tampa Bay don't count). Colorado lost their two bids at a championship, losing the '97 MLS Cup and the '99 US Open Cup. New England lost the Open Cup to LA in '01 and the MLS Cup to LA last year. This is the first championship final for the Metros. Do you hope they lose, just so the Rapids aren't one of the only teams left without some hardware? (not that they couldn't win MLS Cup '03).
