MLS Round 10: Colorado Rapids
Away Game Day Info
Friday, May 3rd, Kickoff 6:00pm
Note for those who don’t read all the way to the bottom: we have an alternate venue for our away viewing this Friday due to a previously arranged private event at our normal venue. We’re at the Lamplighter this Friday evening!
It’s time for the Toilet Bowl! That’s right, the two worst teams in MLS are set to slap-fight each other for the crumbs falling off the top of the table. Which lukewarm team will get an extra large serving of dessert*? There’s only one way to find out, and it’s waiting for Friday! No one likes waiting, but there’s no way around it, unless you’ve pierced the veil of time and space through witchcraft, sorcery and advanced mathematics.
If you’re looking for something to brighten the prospect of a low-powered slug-fest, remember that both Kei Kamara and Nicolas Mezquida play for the Rapids. Here’s a Fun Fact™ for you: Kei Kamara has scored 5 goals, which is more than the 2 of the Whitecaps leading scorer so far this season, Doneil Henry. Another Fun Fact™: Nicolas Mezquida has the same goal & assist tally (1 of each) as our best offensive player, Yordy Reyna.
Speaking of Yordy, he’s seriously injured. Let’s all wish him a speedy recovery. We desperately need someone (everyone?) to step up their game in his absence.
Oh and Colorado fired their coach Wednesday morning. That seems like it bears mentioning.

Away Viewing At the Lamplighter!
Library Square had been bought out for this date before we entered into our agreement. This is the last time we’ll be hosted at an alternate venue for the rest of the year, though! Join us at the Lamplighter on Water St! It’s totally not awkward that you’ll probably walk past the Whitecaps offices to get there.
- Lamplighter Public House, 92 Water St
- Membership table will be open from 5pm (I think… I hope… It’s been a busy couple of days)
Please RSVP to our Facebook event to help our temporary venue partner reserve the right about of tables for us!
*I don’t know what the dessert represents in this sports metaphor gone mild.
