Seattle Sounders' Steve Zakuani breaks Twitter moratorium ahead of first visit to Colorado since injury

Back in January, Seattle Sounders winger Steve Zakuani told the world that he was signing off of Twitter for a while. 

He didn't really give a reason.

But in the lead-up to the Sounders visit to the Colorado Rapids on Saturday (6 pm ET, watch on MLS Live) -- his first return to Dick's Sporting Goods Park since suffering a career-threatening broken leg in 2011 -- he broke his silence. The emotion of the moment and all that came with his long recovery obviously got the best of tweeting self.
