Marco's STH of the Match: Annette Elliott and Family
As part of their benefits package, all Full Season Ticket Holders have the opportunity to be the featured Season Ticket Holder of the Match in 2013.
Annette Elliott and her family will be recognized as Colorado Rapids Season Ticket Holders of the Match when the Rapids host the Vancouver Whitecaps on October 19 at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.
How long have you been a Season Ticket Holder?
"We have been a season ticket holder since 1998. Well, the last two full seasons personally. Prior to that it was through the local club that my oldest daughter played soccer for. I was on the board of directors and season tickets through them was an added benefit."
Who is your favorite player on the Colorado Rapids and why?
"Our favorite Rapids player(s) would be a tie between Drew Moor and Matt Pickens. Both of them give as much off the field as they do on the field. They are both full of class on and off the field. They are both exceptional role models and all around great men."
What is your favorite Colorado Rapids memory?
"The 2010 Eastern Conference Championship game that we won at home. It was the most thrilling experience and most tears I have cried at a sporting event. I will NEVER forget Pablo coming over to the terrace and taking the drum and playing it with us - I was standing right next to him."
Who is your favorite team outside of MLS and why?
"Manchester United. David Beckham and Wayne Rooney are my soccer idols."
How did you fall in love with soccer?
"My oldest daughter has played since she was 6 and is now 19. It has been one of the best experiences of my life being a parent on the sideline supporting her all through the years. We came to love the Rapids because of the clinics and involvement of players within the club she played for."
