Name's Chris White, you can call me UZ. That's pronounced "ooze", not uhz, uzi or you-zee. Old high school nickname, don't ask.
I write about soccer, mostly. I'm the managing editor of Burgundy Wave, our home for the Colorado Rapids. I also occasionally throw down some words elsewhere on the internets as well.
In addition to being a noted football enthusiast, I also enjoy just about every other sport out there. Except Cricket. I still have absolutely no clue how that is supposed to work.
Colorado will be well represented in the 2013 U.S. Open Cup, with three clubs in the discussion. The lowest tiered of them, the Colorado Rovers, will enter the play-in round on May 7th.

Geoff from Stumptown Footy exchanged some questions with me about our teams ahead of the game on Saturday.
Every single player on the Colorado Rapids is injured thanks to a bizarre set of circumstances that involved all the players getting tangled with separate grain threshers, all at the same time.
Mark Knudson of Mile High Sports would like us all to know that Americans don't like soccer, and we never will until they add shootouts and remove that whole 'stoppage time' thing.
More injuries mounting up for the Rapids, how original! Two injuries sustained against LA will keep players out against Portland.
Very few people expected Costa Rica's protest against the snowy conditions on Friday to go through, and sure enough, the result will stand.
We're still doing the vote, but Clint Irwin was probably the man of the match regardless against LA.
Injuries and a red card made an already uninspiring performance even worse for the Rapids, who fell 1-0 to the LA Galaxy.
The USA took all three points from Costa Rica in a snowy affair at Dick's Sporting Goods Park on Friday night.
Tony Meola and Allstate will bring "Good Hands FC" to Colorado on Thursday, surprising a local youth team.
When the Colorado Rapids and LA Galaxy meet for the first time in 2013 on Saturday, both teams will be missing key players.
Part of the pregame festivities at DSGP on Friday will include US legend Tony Meola at the Allstate Fan Zone. (Oh yeah, and we've got tickets to give away.)
Clint Irwin put on a show for us against Real Salt Lake, and I saw stuff that makes me think he might have what it takes to keep that job full-time with Matt Pickens out.
