How Long have you been a Season Ticket Holder?

Joan: "This is my 3rd season."

Who is your favorite player on the Colorado Rapids and why?

"I am very fortunate to be able to attend, with friends and fellow season ticket holders, Allan Reid and Mark Johnson, every open practice. I have many favorites, each for different reasons. It has been exciting to see the new kids (especially Clint Irwin, Dillon Powers and Shane O'Neill) come in and grow with every practice and game."

What is your favorite Colorado Rapids Memory?

Joan: "Of course, the absolute joy and ecstasy of the MLS Championship. Great accomplishment! AND We will do it again!"

Who is your favorite team outside of MLS and why?

"I really don't follow outside of MLS but Mark and Allan would say Arsenal."

How did you fall in love with soccer?

"Over the years...My daughter and all my nieces and nephews played  from five years old through high school. Like many, many parents, aunts and uncles, we spent hours and hours at practices and games. But I really did not fall in LOVE with the game until I started attending Rapids games. Watching professionals play, shows the beautiful game. To me, it is often like a watching a ballet. I love the grace, strategy, flow and intensity of the game. It is the beautiful game. In addition, I love the Rapids players and staff. They are just great people! It is a privilege to be a season ticket holder, C38 supporter and part of the Colorado Rapids family."
