First on the docket, D.C.United. So much for being the top seed in the Leaque! For some reason they can’t get the Chicago Fire off their back. Chicago get’s in the playoffs on the last day of the regular season and they proceed to humiliate D.C. at R.F.K. in front the Supporter’s Shield faithful. United did show some fortitude and effort by tying the match late and with some luck the match could have went into OT and you never know what can happen in OT. Soccer is a sport that underdogs prevail frequently and Chicago had momemtum and matched up well with D.C. I will stick with my prediction that the NE Rev. will play Houston for the Cup at R.F.K.
On the SEC and the Hogs. I like the Hogs to win a squeaker (23-21) against the “Old Ball Coach” Gamecocks Saturday night in Fayetteville. D-Mac and company will overpower Carolina in the end.
Look for LSU to bounce back and take out Saban and the Tide!
Florida should beat Vandy, but you never know these days in the SEC. I’ll take FLA in a close one.
Could the NAVY losing streak to the Irish end tomorrow. I would have said yes before last week’s loss to the Blue Hens of Delaware. You have to root for NAVY to knock off Notre Dame tomorrow, it would be a sweet victory and it may not happen again in my lifetime. The service academy’s are usually undermanned against the big schools, but they never give up and they play with pride and team spirit.
I’m off to the Ozarks tomorrow to watch my Hogs and enjoy another sun filled college football Saturday this Fall
Cheers! Go Ravens beat the Squeelers!
