Reading Oedipus this past week was my first exposure to Greek tragedy since freshman year and my first exposure to Greek drama ever. It was a really great experience. It’s very different from other literature that I’ve read before, but it’s really interesting to see where so many of the literary ideas come from. Shakespeare, […]

The Colorado Rapids Soccer Club are making moves this month to bolster their attack and on Tuesday acquired another proven MLS striker, Diego Rubio from Sporting Kansas City. The Rapids announced Rubio was acquired from Sporting KC in exchange for Kelyn Rowe plus $300,000 in allocation money. Rowe, had only been acquired earlier in the day from New England Revolution in a deal that sent Edgar Castillo to the Revs. In the end, Rubio became the third attacking player added to the club since the 2018 season ended, one in which Colorado finished 18-19-7 with 31 points on the year and 11th in the Western Conference. The Rapids previously added midfielder Nicolas Mezquida and striker Kei Kamara in separate deals. “Diego Rubio was a key target for us heading in to the offseason, so we’re delighted to secure his signing and to bring him to Colorado,” Rapids Executive Vice President & General Manager, Pádraig Smith, said in a news release. “Diego is a dangerous striker in front of goal and will provide us with a formidable attacking threat as he pairs up with Kei Kamara.” The 5-foot-11, 170-pound Chilean striker has 15 goals in 51 appearances (23 starts) in MLS. He also scored two goals in the 2018 MLS Cup playoffs. Rubio is looking forward to opportunities with the Rapids and appears ready to play for the burgundy and sky blue. He is looking forward to playing in front of the hometown fans as well as Centennial 38, a supporters group of Colorado. “I want to thank the Rapids for this opportunity,” said Rubio. “I can’t wait to take the pitch and score goals in front of Colorado supporters.” Last week the Rapids also orchestrated the return of 29-year-old goalkeeper Clint Irwin in a trade with Toronto FC.

The child spent the next year cowering under her bed-sheets every night because she […]
