Holding The High Line: Colorado Rapids First Win

Hello Colorado Rapids fans! Happy Revenge of the Fifth! This week on Holding The High Line, Rabbi and Red get to talk about the Colorado Rapids first win of 2021! We banter about Champions League, CCL and UEFA, and Manchester United fans getting a game postponed. The guys do Big Thing, Bad Thing, Big Thing on the 1-0 win over Vancouver Whitecaps. Then we look ahead to the freefalling Minnesota United as the Rapids look to revenge their playoff loss from last year.
