COMMERCE CITY, Colo.- Nearly a thousand Sporting Kansas City fans chose the right game to travel over 500 miles to watch their team.

Dom Dwyer’s injury time strike handed Sporting a last-gasp 3-2 win at Colorado on Saturday afternoon at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in a wild contest that featured more penalty kicks for the Rapids, a sending off and five second half goals.

COMMERCE CITY, Colo.- Pablo Mastroeni came into MLS as a center back and played primarily as an aggressive, defensive-minded midfielder during his 15 years in the league and with the U.S. national team.

But as a coach, Mastroeni is managing with far more of an offensive mind. Even with his defensive roots, the new head coach of the Colorado Rapids is making it clear that he wants to push for goal, regardless of the score or situation. Just take a look at the Rapids’ substitutions in their two games so far this season.

And so the debate rages on …

Incidents, such as we saw in Saturday’s 2-0 win over the Portland Timbers, are sure to spark argument and counter-argument.

Was the second one a penalty? Were the two red cards deserved? Was the referee up to scratch? Should Portland have been awarded a penalty of their own?

Frankly, the only question I was asking on Saturday was ‘when will I get feeling back in my fingers and toes?’
