The Colorado Rapids web site has Tacoma-slash-Federal Way’s Ciaran O’Brien in the first XI for Saturday night’s MLS opener v LA Galaxy. It’s live on Fox Soccer Channel at 6:30 p.m.

He’s starting wide on the left in the Rapids’ five-man midfield, which will line him up against some guy named Beckham.

O’Brien played for Sparta, FC United, Decatur High, and for a year at UC Santa Barbara before going as the fifth pick in the MLS Super Draft. His big brother Leighton is the Sounders’ fantasista – a role that we can see Ciaran growing into in the big league as well.

Ciaran enjoyed a fiery reputation among local refs. If that occasional F-bomb in my ear hole helped you get to the top, C, we’re happy to have done our part!
