Dallas v Colorado
Sun, Nov 21, 8:30pm(ET)
People in Colorado finally turned out for the Rapids, even in the cold. More than 17,700. A full house at the Home Depot Center saw Dallas dismantle the Galaxy.
The final numbers won’t hold up to last year. 3 of the 5 lowest drawing clubs were in the playoffs this year and the final location, BMO field is a relatively small venue. Speaking of BMO, in addition to no ‘glamour’ teams in the final, the weather could be dicey. Don’t be surprised if the game is listed as a sellout, but with lots of empty seats come game day. That being said, I think the Dallas/Colorado final could make for an excellent match.

As you can see, I am listing the ‘old San Jose’ accomplishments where they belong(IMO), with the Dynamo. I know the deal was that the Quakes would retain the ‘legacy’ of the original team, but I choose reality, i.e.; the franchise that won the cups resides in Houston.

- After suffering what some are calling the biggest upset in women’s soccer history, the US Women still have a chance to qualify for the Women’s World Cup. They defeated Costa Rica and now must win a home and home vs Italy to earn a spot in the big dance.
