Looking ahead and a guarantee

I'll start with the guarantee: After last week, I think I can say that these predictions will almost positively, certainly NOT reflect actual results, real or imagined.

Last week, in my first foray into this whole prediction game, I finished 1-6 looking at results, with the one courtesy of la chivitas' win in Frisco. Hey, I even got the attendance almost right in that game. (Don't laugh, when you go 1-6, you grasp for whatever you can get!)

So, seeing as how the Amerigoats screwed up my unblemished record, there is NO WAY I'm picking them this week. That'll show 'em! (HAH!)

So, without further delay:

Columbus at Real Salt Lake: 2-1 RSL. Crew continues their winless start to the season as the Royals inaugurate their first full season at Rio Tinto with a win. This is the second week in a row I have picked Kreis' boys to beat a tough opponent. Don't fix it if it's broke, I always say.

Seattle at Toronto: 1-1. De Rosario finally breaks through on Kasey Keller. Unfortunately for TFC, Fredy Montero fires in on a bicycle kick in last action because that's pretty much the only thing he hasn't done right?

FC Dallas at New England: 3-1 Revs. Cooper scores on a shot from Logan Airport, but New England, after they stop laughing, score early and often against these guys as FCD would be in USL-2 in 2010 if we had promotion/relegation here.

DYNAMO at DCU: 2-1 Dynamo. DCU looks like the East's answer to FC Frisco. Chingy comes on as a second half sub, but by then it'll be mostly over. But this is the Dynamo after all, so they surrender the goal to keep it close and give happiness to heart surgeons all over Houston.

Colorado at LA Galaxy: 1-0 Gals. What a stinker of a game. Rapids are no match for Landon.

NYRB at Chicago: 2-0 Fire.
Osorio is a master of match-ups, but really, other than Angel, what does he have? Fire dominate.

San Jose at Kansas City: 1-1 Another Sunday stinker. Jimmy Conrad scores his first as he attempts to lead the team in scoring again this season as a defender! But Huckerby will also score for the away draw.

Columbus at Chivas USA: 2-0 Crew. The Crew are just too good to go four games in this league with no wins. Hejduk is back from the get-go and las chivitas gets nothing. Zach Thornton wonders when will it all end.
