Quality news, before it smells
We told you the Fishwrapper would be back for the off-season. Turns out we were actually telling the truth. Who knew?
Lots of swirling stuff surrounding the Rapids these days. No, it’s not snow… and man, us riders could use some of that.
We’ve “Fallen Back” into DRT! Yep…. December Rumor Time. Use it or lose it. Lesseee….
First, may we address the Borchers thing? The good folks over at FC Rocky had the pull to get official word that Nat is officially not in negotiation with the Rapids. It’s nice to have friends working on the behalf of fans!
In defense of NoFanAlone.com’s reporting that Borchers *is* negotiating with the Rapids, it’s probably against FIFA regs to officially negotiate with someone under contract (remember how LA couldn’t talk to Beckham before January 1 last year?).
We are choosing to assume that this is a wink-wink “Hey, look, it’s a completely random meeting with Nat Borchers and high-level Rapids mgmt. at a neutral location” sort of thing. We can absoSmurfly *guarantee* that Borchers was in Denver this past week, and in position to bump into Rapids management if he wanted to. Probably still is. I mean, seriously, who goes back to Norway in December?
For everyone who worships large, Norwegian blonds, don’t give up hope yet.
BilFish reacts to the news that Beckham (and the Galaxy) will open 2008 in Commerce City!
It’s as true as it gets. First swirled during MLS Cup ’07 earlier this month, the Rapids are tentatively confirming that Beckham will be injuring his ankle in March, just prior to not arriving to face the power of the Rapids at a home opener in the April Cold of Colorado.
Okay, anything more swirling around that may be of interest?!?
Perhaps. This only applies to people who drive to The Dick. Those who walk, or ride unicycles or whatever, can skip this one.
PARKING: It is changing for next year. The Rapids figure they need to keep ironing out new wrinkles in 2008. The Rapids are, according to rumors and reports, planning to implement reserved parking for 2008.
Why? Dunno. What does “reserved” mean? I haven’t asked them. But my hunch is that they desperately need to add value to season ticket holder packages by taking away free parking (or at least “good” parking) from the rest of the fans. Something like that.
We’re trying to follow up on this story (slowly) because it could have effects on how Class VI tailgates and enjoys the games. First, if you get “reserved” parking or whatever in another section, can you still hang out in Lot AA with Class VI? Second, will Class VI be able to continue to meet in AA or will we get bumped?
Dunno. We’ll keep you up to date, but for now we’re not panicking.
…Sooooo…. We wanted to get the rumor mill started with just a few tidbits to whet a dry December whistle.
Check back next week for some killer new rumors to heat things up.
