It wasn't exactly the start D.C. United was hoping for when the team opened its glistening, brand-new, $500 million stadium on Saturday.
With the pace not going United's way, Rooney entered the game in the 58th minute, and the momentum seemed to swing to the host club.
"We were very sharp in the second half, especially when Wayne came on", United coach Ben Olsen said.
I felt I had done okay, was top goalscorer, played most of the season from midfield, but that's football.
Rooney was involved in the build-up for the second goal of the game after 69 minutes, the debutant laying off the ball on the edge of the box in a swift move which was capped off by USA global Paul Arriola.
He's undoubtedly DC United's biggest ever signing and the fans were chanting: "We want Rooney!" They let me know and I said fair enough, I'm not going to disrespect the football club. "And that gave me a decision to make, and I made this decision".
Rooney fired a unsafe header in the 79th minute that was fisted away by Vancouver goaltender Brian Rowe.
Roku TV Wireless Speakers are both intriguing and concerning
Looking beyond this limitation, the Roku TV Wireless Speakers appear to work much like other TV-attached soundbars and speakers. That's to be expected, though, since TV speakers aren't exactly known for offering the greatest audio quality.

United States launches WTO challenge against Canada claiming retaliatory tariffs are 'illegal'
The argument from the Trump administration, announced Monday, is that Trump's tariffs are legal but the retaliation is not. Tusk called for the EU, Russia, US and China to work together to reform the world order rather than destroy it.
But moments later, Rooney was on the attack again and fired an outlet pass to American midfielder Arriola, who blasted a shot from outside the penalty area into the bottom left corner of the net.
"I want to win", Rooney said.
Asad raced to the sidelines to celebrate and the second player to hug him was Rooney, who had been exercising with other reserves when the goal was scored. We're still young team, people don't talk about how young we are, not only in the soccer aspect but the mentality that people bring to elevate some of our guys through his habits, through his experience.
"Another tough week of training now and hopefully I can get a bit more game time next week", Rooney said.
