R.I.P. Rapidman

Apparently the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer will be rebranded. Some kind of combination of West Ham colors and Arsenal related name is rumored.

The bad news is that Rapidman will probably no longer exist.

So much for Major League Soccer tradition.

Tampa Bay Mutiny out of existence
Miami Fusion out of existence
San Jose Clash became San Jose Earthquakes became Houston 1836 became Houston Dynamo
Kansas City Wiz became Kansas City Wizards
MetroStars became Red Bull New York
Dallas Burn became FC Dallas

and everyone's changed their colors a ton of times.

Anyway, it's all kind of pitiful comedy; still, I'll keep my eye on it this spring and summer.
