Thursday May 24 — ESPN’s Game
Chicago Fire @ New York Red Bulls — (1-3 NYRB) 0-3 NYRB
ESPN must be awfully happy about this game. There was some pretty good soccer on the field, a non-draw, and enough scoring to keep the non-soccer fan interested. Good stuff.
Saturday May 26
Kansas City Wizards @ New England Revolution — (1-2 Revs) 4-3 KC
Wow, I guess Eddie Johnson might be back after all.
Houston Dynamo @ DC United — (0-2 DC) 1-2 DC
Christian Gomez finally scored and Ben Olsen added a goal as well. DC is starting to look like they’re capable of playing. As hot as New York and New England look, it might not be enough.
Toronto FC @ Columbus Crew — (1-0 TFC) 2-2 Draw
Columbus finally got a couple of points and Toronto put up some points on the road, but neither side did enough to win.
Los Angeles Galaxy @ Colorado Rapids — (1-1 draw) 0-1 Rapids
LA went down a man early, and ended up losing on a Herculez Gomez goal following a Terry Cooke cross.
FC Dallas @ Chivas USA — (2-1 Dallas) 0-2 Chivas
Galindo and Razov both scored, putting the goats over Dallas.
Sunday May 27
Real Salt Lake @ Chicago Fire &mdash (2-1 RSL) 0-0 Draw
This was a game that neither team deserved to win. Chicago fans can take heart in breaking their losing streak, and RSL fans can (maybe) find a silver lining in the play of Kipre and Esky.
USL1 Friday Night Game
Miami FC @ Montreal Impact — (1-2 Montreal) 0-1 Montreal
This was a pretty good game. The Montreal crowd seemed pretty engaged. Montreal’s really got to love their win as Vancouver lost to Carolina, setting up a huge Vancouver @ Montreal match for Fox Soccer Channel’s match next Friday.
How’d I Do?
I ended up 3-6-0 this week (4-6-0 if you count the US Open Cup game) and 6-8-2 overall. I’m still doing well enough that I’ll try picking this weeks games, but I’m sure I’m not at the top of anyone’s table.
