Bizarre is one word used to describe Tuesday's U.S. Open Cup match involving the Colorado Rapids and Atlanta Silverbacks. There were a total of four red cards issued, while both coaches were sent off as the Rapids fell to the Silverbacks 2-1. 

Of course, that doesn't even touch upon the nearly hour-long weather delay in the first half of the match. The Colorado sky was as temperamental as the game being played underneath it.

Here are a few spectacular images captured by Rapids fans and staffers.
