Beckham to Make Trip to DSG; Rapids' Injury Crisis

I have it on very good authority that David Beckham is indeed making the trip to Colorado tonight and will likely start the game against the Rapids tomorrow night. Like Rapids' captain Pablo Mastroeni though, he is very unlikely to play the full game. Speaking to Mastroeni this morning as the team went through their final paces before the season opener tomorrow, the skipper said he is not likely to play more than 20-25 minutes tomorrow night. He did spend a lot of time on his own this morning at DSG Park stretching and working on his injuries. His aim is to be fit for as much of the season as possible and not worry overly about the season opener. The Rapids really are struggling fitness wise and will have many top players unavailable for tomorrow's game. Let's hope the likes of Omar Cummings and Christian Gomez can knock in some early goals to calm the nerves.

I hope to see Herc make an appearance and make it 2 for 2 in scoring for the Rapids in home openers.

Absolutely.Herc, Omar, whoever! Let's hope all the anticipation doesn't end in anticlimax. Thanks for the comment Allen. I'll be at the game in a media capacity tonight so look for a report later.
