UPDATE 9:25 p.m. — New York wins 2-0. So my prediction record continues…
The MLS Cup playoffs kick off in less than 24 hours. Can you believe it?
FC Dallas hosts the New York Red Bulls at 6 p.m. Wednesday to get us started (the game is broadcast on FOX Soccer). The Colorado Rapids host the Columbus Crew in the other wild-card game at 7 p.m. Thursday (which will be available online at MLSsoccer.com).
So as the 10-team postseason field is about to be trimmed to eight, who do you got in these first two games?
I’m siding with the Western Conference. I’ll say FC Dallas wins 2-1 and Colorado wins 1-0.
