As you probably have read on multiple websites the Rapids won 2-0 against the Columbus Crew. What you may not have read is how beautiful it was to be back to what feels like home. It was MLS First Kick, a day to come back to the stadium grounds and stare at your favorite players as they warm up.
The day began by seeing the wonderful smile of Drew Moor, and the all so handsome Matt Pickens stop warm up tosses, The game of course had its ups and downs, as both teams shook the rust off from a regular off season. What was the highlight of the match though? Seeing my future husband (my g4s Valentine) score a Goal of the Week nominee blast from just outside the box. What seemed like a play that was developing slowly turned into a wonderful finish, topped with his “Dead Fish” celebration.
