After facing off in the playoffs last season, the Columbus Crew and Colorado Rapids will get reacquainted in the season opener for both teams at Dick's Sporting Good Park on Saturday.

The Crew will be looking for a bit of revenge, after the Rapids knocked them out of the playoffs in 2011 on an Omar Cummings goal in a 1-0 game at Dick's Sporting Good Park in a wild-card match. In fact, Colorado has ended the season for Columbus in the playoffs two years running now.

Columbus retooled a bit in the offseason, and Massive Report is particularly excited to watch new player.

There is one thing every Columbus fan wants to see: Milovan Mirosevic. How exactly does he play? Is he a box-to-box midfielder, or more of an attacker? Will he dribble at people, or distribute the ball out wide? And most importantly, how will he team up with forward Emilio Renteria? All of these questions about the one of the most exciting additions in recent Crew history will soon be answered.

The game, which marks the only meeting between the teams during the regular season, is scheduled to start at 6:00 p.m. Eastern
