Compare and contrast...

Save Beck's ink sleeves, Nicky Butt's cue-ball, the Fergie/Ed Harrison switch and the total omission of little Terry Cooke on the end, it's surprising how little has actually changed over the years.

For the 16th time in 17 years, the Colorado Rapids host a July 4 match, with the Vancouver Whitecaps providing the foil this season.

As the holiday approaches, The Tuesday List takes a look at how the Rapids have performed on the holiday through the years. And, although the game was a day early in 2011, last season's closest match is included for this comparison.

Colorado - Dallas: 2006

View From The Couch at related • 0 views
Finally we come to our last matchup with Dallas in 2006, also the last time we made the playoffs prior to this year. The Rapids finished 4th in the West, 11 points behind the leading Dallas team and were once again facing them int eh first round. The format was the same as 2005, a two game series with the second leg being at the home of the higher seed.

Peterson, Smith Done for Season

The Rapids have just announced that Jacob Peterson and Jamie Smith will join Colin Clark on the season-ending injury list. Peterson tore his ACL in a collision in Wednesday's San Jose game. Smith injured his knee against Houston on August 30th, and after having surgery to repair it has reportedly developed a blood clot.

Last week the Rapids faced Toronto. This week the Rapids face Toronto. Next week the Rapids will face San Jose, the week after the Rapids will face San Jose. If this seems familiar its because the USOC games earlier in the season had us play LA back-to-back, then Seattle back-to-back. This time the Rapids are in the Great White North to try to keep their roll going.

Midseason Review

We're coming around the final turn of the season, 75% complete. Time for a final mid-season review.

Goalkeeping: Things haven't changed much in goal from the midway point. Pickens has been solid but not spectacular, Burpo's a capable backup, and Ceus took the Charlotte Eagles to the USL-2 championship before losing in the final.

Cooke Waived By Colorado

Colorado waived British midfielder Terry Cooke yesterday to make room for Jamie Smith.

Cooke piled up a decent amount of assist, 31 to be exact, over the previous three seasons; he had a dozen each in both 2006 and last season, finishing first and third in MLS respectively.

I won't lie to ya, even though he wasn't seeing time in the Mile High city, some other MLS club should jump to get him.

"I'm so disappointed Dad." My four-year-old son summed it up so well when I told him that Terry Cooke had been waived from the Colorado Rapids.

Terry Cooke Waived

Reports are trickling out that Terry Cooke, as expected, has been waived by the Rapids. I expect the official announcement will be made at the same time as the signing of his replacement, Jamie Smith, is made. This move is hardly a surprise as its been obvious that Cookie has been out of favor for a while.

The Colorado Rapids ended up sealing a comfortable 4-0 victory against the unfortunate New York Red Bulls last night. I'll stick my neck out and say this wasn't the best performance by the Rapids and that the final scoreline flattered them. That sounds a little negative when you think of a 4-0 result but, a couple of decisons going the other way, and the outcome could have been very different.

It will be interesting to see if Terry Cooke laces up this weekend against DC United. With Colin Clark still absent on US national team duty and the team more likely to shift back to a 4-4-2 formation now that Omar Cummings is back to play upfront with Conor Casey, it would appear as if the veteran winger may get the nod.
