Oscar Pareja has found a new option at left back. Veteran right-sided midfielder Brian Mullan.

And he did.

Attention Colorado Rapids Season Ticket Holder that pre-ordered the new 2013 home #RapidsJersey: they have arrived!
MLS games ... on our computers? And tablets? And phones? Hell, yeah! We're in.
And we know you are, too. After all, you live as digitally as we do. For example, roughly 26 percent of you are reading this article on a mobile device. And – just like us – we know you like to watch games whenever you want.
Which is why we here at MLS Digital are so excited about the launch of MLS LIVE 2013.
