Rapids on (Hilgen)Brinck of Better Defense

Sorry.  This will be the only visibly strained pun of the day.

Enjoy this press release announcing the Colorado Rapids latest signing: Chase Hilgenbrinck, a defender who has, to this point, played in Chile.  But he’s from Illinois…and you can’t get more American than that, dammit.  And I wouldn’t be doing my bit unless I flagged Rapids coach Fernando Clavijo’s attempt at hyping the signing:

 “Chase will use his speed and experience to help us continue to bolster our defense that gave up the third fewest goals in the league this past season.”

So…yeah…a defender.  Oh, good.  Exactly what’s needed in Colorado.
