How long have you been a Season Ticket Holder?
"I have been a season ticket holder since the 2008 season - moved back to Denver from college in 2007."
Who is your favorite player on the Colorado Rapids and why?
"My current favorite player on the Rapids has to be Pablo Mastroeni. He has played with the club for so long and is a veteran of the 2002 and 2006 FIFA World Cups"
What is your favorite Colorado Rapids memory?
"My favorite Rapids memory by far was rooting on the mighty Rapids to victory in Toronto, ON during the 2010 MLS Cup. I wasn't going to miss that trip to witness the Rapids win the title :)"
Who is your favorite team outside of MLS and why?
"My favorite team outside of MLS is Juventus. Growing up I watched the Serie A and idolized players such as Zinedine Zidane, Alessandro del Piero and Gianluigi Buffon. I enjoyed watching Juve play domestically and in UEFA cup games. It was sad when the Bianconeri were relegated during the match fixing scandal in Italy but they are back and currently a strong team in Italy and Europe."
How did you fall in love with soccer?
"I have always been a soccer player and I have always enjoyed watching the sport professionally. However, in 2005 I had the unique privilege of attending a UEFA Champions League 2nd round qualifier in Debrecen, Hungary. The hosts (Debrecen VSC) played Hajduk Split of Croatia and won 3-0. The home (and away) atmosphere was remarkable and I wanted to cheer for my hometown club, Colorado Rapids, like that. I've followed MLS very closely since that pivotal event in my life."
