And nobody believed me on Saturday night when I said the Rapids were likely to turn around and blow this golden opportunity. Maybe I'm just on a witch hunt here, but is there any other reason aside from incompetent coaching that would explain the Rapids' performance tonight? It's not that they lost. It's that they were entirely embarassed. I'm really finding it hard to swallow Hankinson's postgame comments on a lot of levels: Black and blue, indeed. Perhaps someone can explain why Beckerman was left on the bench. Or the fact that despite his attempts at subs, both Titus and Stewart will be missing the Burn match because of first-half yellow cards. Are you Myernick, Are you Myernick, Are you Myernick in disguise? Are you Myernick in disguise? How about this gem from Kramer: Hey David, any reason you didn't touch the third goal? Hell, you didn't even touch Twellman. Even Mark Chung manages to find a silver lining: Of course it was a different game! It was THREE TO ZERO! Think maybe that has something to do with the Rapids having the ball more in the second half? Think maybe, just maybe that's why the Revs were playing 9 men behind the ball for 45 minutes? More from Chung: Meaning what, that you should play like you're down by 3 or that you don't give a ************? And finally, back to Kramer: Of course. Why bother learning from these experiences? If we forget these games, it's like they never happened. Right? Seriously, does this team even appear to notice that they're far from hitting any knid of stride as they enter the playoffs, let alone earning a home-field advantage? I attack the comments of Chung and Kramer here, but the reality is that on the field these guys are fierce, hard-ass competitors -- and they're going to have a long, miserable trip back to Colorado after this one. All the more reason that I wonder why they can't seem to get settled and comfortable for two games in a row. Yay.
