Vancouver, BC - With seven games left in the Rapids march to futility, Colorado Rapids fan Robert James Anderson finally remembered to have fun at a soccer game.
"Yeah, It's crazy but after plummeting to the bottom of the league and dealing with inept management that keeps repeating the same mistakes over and over again I finally remembered to have fun during the game against Vancouver," said Anderson to a Nutmeg News reporter on Burrard street.
"I don't know if it is the whiskey, the food, the atmosphere, the conviviality of the fans, but I actually reminded myself that the goal here isn't to have abject suffering all the time, but rather to enjoy myself at my team sporting event. This, of course, doesn't absolve our inept and wholly shitty ownership from their god-awful mistakes that have plummeted us from MLS Cup Champions to the bottom of the league, but at the same time I am now determined to not let them ruin my enjoyment of something that should bring some parts of joy to my life."
Anderson said that despite the 2-0 loss that he knows that his love of the game and of the Rapids as a club will override his disgust of the inept Kroenke Sports Enterprises management team. "Those guys can get fucked, honestly. They are awful in so many ways. But this Rapids team is mine and mine alone. I haven't trudged through bad seasons at Mile High Stadium and good seasons at Dick Sporting Good park to be put off by a bunch of jackasses that know as much about soccer as I know about menstrual pain. I'm not going to let up in my criticism of them, but I'm still going to try to enjoy myself, and that starts with enjoying these road trips more and more."
When asked what he was going to do following the match Anderson said, "I'm going to find some guys from the Southsiders, get drunk, play some pinball, commiserate about the loss with my friends online, enjoy the city, remember good times and bad while hoping that the KSE stooges will fire themselves by accident."
The Nutmeg News will have more on Mr Andersons new lease on life if it continues.
