Soccer fans get close to MLS Cup trophy

Soccer fans take turn posing with the Philip F. Anschutz trophy at Back East Bar and Grill Sunday afternoon in Colorado Springs.  The Colorado Rapids won the Major League Soccer Cup in November and the trophy is traveling in select cities across the state.

Tiffany & Co. created the $20,000 piece of hardware.  The luxury design company is also in charge of cleaning the trophy and etching the champion's name onto the sterling silver each year.  The Cup trophy was redesigned in 2008, replacing the Alan I. Rothenberg Trophy.

Back East Bar & Grill is the "unofficial/official" venue for watching Rapids games.
