[MLS ATTENDANCE] Week 7 had the smallest attendance average of the season so far but the Colorado Rapids drew a standing-room only crowd for David Beckham's second appearance in Colorado since he joined MLS in 2007. For MLS team attendance rankings ...

* Colorado announced an SRO crowd of 19,152 for its 2-1 loss to the Los Angeles Galaxy featuring Beckham.

* Portland also sold out (20,438), for a 1-0 win over Kansas City, but five games failed to break the 15,000 mark.
