Gol-orado


Stayed hardcore never changed my attitude
I got the hip hop juice for the hip hop food...


The entire State of Colorado is undoubtedly waking up this AM with a nasty soccer hangover, complete with a Sunday night of lighting off flares, consuming mass amounts of Carlsberg, and singing that "Ole" song endlessly.
The Colorado Rapids are your 2010 MLS Cup Champions!
Alright, so it's not quite Holiday sliding into home, or TD scoring versus the Packers, but it does count for something. Right? Colorado actually has a strong soccer tradition dating back to the 70s with the original Colorado Avalanche, the Colorado Foxes won a couple titles in the 90s (and they played their home games at a dog track), through the first decade and a half of the Rapids. (I used to work the Rapids games at old Mile High in the first season. Think a huge cavern with 10 people, a couple guys banging drums, and grass.)
The extra time in last night's game was pretty intriguing, after the dude with the Iverson-like braids scored off that other dude's thigh to give the Rapids the lead. Promptly, the AI dude was hurt (nice to see the FC Dallas players trying to fight the Rapids' trainer to get him off the field) and they had to play with 10 players. Apparently, there are 11 guys in soccer and you can't replace an injured one (apply that to the NFL? Fantasy football bonanza!) Dallas then brought it for the last 10 plus minutes, and if not for some key saves by the Rapids goalie/Amish stand-in, they might still be playing in Toronto (nice move MLS, championship game in Canada, in November, at night. Plus to Toronto for the "sideline" seats basically being bar tables though.)
So today, forget Arsenal, or Real Madrid. Liverpool? Inter Milan? Please. The center of the soccer universe is smack dab in the middle of Commerce City, Colorado.
