Reflecting on my May 18 Picks

Well, that didn’t go so well, did it? Let’s see how I did.

Game Prediction Actual
DC United @ Toronto FC 2-2 draw 2-1 DCU
Looks like TFC was a bit more tired and DCU a bit hungrier than I’d thought. This should be a pretty good series going forward, with great fan support on both sides.
Columbus Crew @ NY Red Bulls 0-1 NY 0-4 NY
I thought Columbus would be beaten, but I had no idea the margin would be this wide. NYRB looks like they’ve regained their form. Now if they can just find some fans for their home games.
New England Revolution @ Houston Dynamo 2-0 Revs 1-0 Revs
I didn’t get the score right, but I did have the result.
Kansas City Wizards @ Colorado Rapids 2-1 Wizards 1-1 Draw
I haven’t seen the game, so I don’t know how exciting it might have been.
LA Galaxy @ Chivas USA 3-1 Galaxy 1-1 Draw
Sounds like this one was a good game to watch … I’ve got it on the PVR so I’ll enjoy it later. Bad break for Chris Albright though. Hopefully it’s not a bad injury.
Real Salt Lake @ FC Dallas 2-1 RSL 1-2 FC Dallas
Wow, this one really floored me. I can’t really believe that an RSL team that came out and fought so hard in their last two games could have looked this bad. I’m still hoping Coach Kreis’ boys get things turned around.

Which means I was 2-4 (2-2-2 Ive’s Method). I don’t think I could have been much more average than that. I’ll try my hand again next week, but if I don’t start doing better I don’t know how long I’ll keep it up.

Since it’s not an MLS game, I’ll pitch in my US Open Cup pick here:

  • Wed May 23 — Real Salt Lake @ Colorado Rapids — 1-2 Colorado

I just don’t see RSL being up for this game, and the Carey Talley injury is just going to make it worse.
