Why yes, I did want to use this picture for no good reason.

Red Bull Arena, The Cathedral of Football, Harrison, NJ
TV: ESPN

It's opening day for the New York Red Bulls! We can forget the last two weeks of games (that didn't happen) and start our season anew at home against the Colorado Rapids this afternoon.

We have exciting lineup changes for New York: the previously suspended Rafael Márquez returns to the midfield in place of Teemu Tainio (who doesn't make the bench, and is therefore probably injured), Kenny Cooper again starts alongside Thierry Henry, but Wilman Conde gets a start alongside Markus Holgersson. Also, Taylor Twellman is doing color commentary: kill me now.

Lineups

Red Bulls (4-4-2): Ryan Meara, Jan Gunnar Solli, Markus Holgersson, Wilman Conde, Roy Miller, Dane Richards, Rafael Marquez, Dax McCarty, Joel Lindpere, Kenny Cooper, Thierry Henry (c)

Bench: Jeremy Vuolo, Mehdi Ballouchy, Brandon Barklage, Victor Palsson, Jhonny Arteaga, Stephen Keel, Connor Lade

Rapids (allegedly 4-3-3): Troy Pickens, Kosuke Kimura, Marvell Wynne, Drew Moor (c), Luis Zapata, Jaime Castrillon, Wells 'Scumbag' Thompson, Ross LaBauex, Brian Mullan, Omar Cummings, Tony Cascio

Bench: Steward Ceus, Scott Palguta, Tyrone Marshall, Hunter Freeman, Joseph Nane, Andre Akpan, Quincy Amarikwa

Please win.
