After being gone for nearly two weeks with preseason trips to the warm climates of Las Vegas, Nev. and Ventura, Calif., the Rapids were welcomed home over the weekend by a snow storm that brought nearly a foot of snow to area. With more snow possible for Tuesday, the team has altered its training schedule for the week as they prepare for Saturday's regular season opener at FC Dallas.
Join the Colorado Rapids players, coaches, and mascots at the Paramount Theater on March 6 in "Cheers to Rapids," the re-named kickoff event to introduce the 2013 team in the week prior to the home opener.

Oscar Pareja has found a new option at left back. Veteran right-sided midfielder Brian Mullan.
Prior to Friday's preseason match against LA - the team's last before the season opener - Pareja told ColoradoRapids.com that the team was "evaluating two or three possibilities that are important in the competition for positions, and we want to see them on Friday."
And he did.
Two announcements from the Colorado Rapids this week helped paint a clearer picture of the opening day roster when the season kicks off on Saturday, March 2 at FC Dallas.
Major League Soccer' roster compliance deadline is March 1. On that date, teams are required to have no more than 30 *eligible roster players, be within the salary budget, and have no more international players than slots available. (MLS ROSTER RULES)
