Thanks for the submission from Rapids fan Gary Meyer, who made it down with family members to Honduras and got to witness live and in person Conor Casey's gargantuan performance that sent the USA to the World Cup.
Here's his brief recap and photo:
"Just got back last night from Honduras and what an experience. We had a great time at the game and had a lot of fun being the only 2 gringos that we could see for several sections.
"The fans were very passionate and (if you saw the game) were as loud for 2 1/2 hours before the game as they were during it. My friend Randy traded flags with one of the Hondurans seated in our section.
"I think you'll like the advertisement I gave the Rapids down there, wearing my Rapids jersey to the game. I was glad to see Conor start; congrats to him for such a great game! I hope we play as well tonight vs. Costa Rica to help Honduras get to the World Cup - they deserve it.
"Here's a photo from the game of us at the stadium. We also stopped by Diunsa (their big store). We got to meet some of the '82 Honduras World Cup team there - and even got interviewed by a reporter from La Prensa.
"Thanks and best to you,"
