Rapids Alumni Players Help Induct Spencer

For those who witnessed the Colorado Rapids Gallery of Honor induction for club legend John Spencer on Sunday, it was a moving experience with a heartfelt speech on the field by Spenny.

Spencer thanked the club, the front office, the fans, and then last, but not least, his former teammates that helped him achieve this honor.

During the induction cermony, several Colorado Rapids Alumni Players were on hand to show their support for Spencer on his special day.

Were you able to identify the former players on the pitch at halftime on Sunday? Judging from all the "Is that who I think it is?" questions in the Cantina during the day's postgame autograph session, we're guessing not.

Not to worry though, we're here to help!
