DENVER (AP) - A blizzard dumping more than a foot of snow along the Colorado Front Range on Saturday has put a damper on the busiest day in sports in the state, scuttling plans to use a bright orange soccer ball in the Rapids' home opener against Philadelphia.
Major League Soccer postponed that game until Sunday, after the storm has moved out.
As of midday Saturday, all four big college basketball games in the state and the Denver Nuggets' game against the Minnesota Timberwolves were still on.
The University of Colorado issued a statement saying its 2:30 p.m. game against Oregon State would go on as scheduled but asked fans "to use extreme caution if they are still planning to attend," noting that "travel in the Denver-Boulder area is not advised."
