Helluva weekend to be an MLS fan. Not only do we get the O.G. MLS beef, physician NY v. D.C., on Saturday night but we get the latest installment of Gerald Ford-era footie fight Portland v. Seattle on Sunday afternoon. The only way this could have been scheduled any better would have been a Friday night fight between LA and Chivas USA. Oh well, we can’t have it all can we.
I may have my preferences for the outcome of each of these matches but I think one will be close and the other will be an ass-whipping. And before you assume it, I don’t think that it will be the Taurine Army doing the ass-whipping (they can’t play Toronto every week).
