You've got the U.S. score backwards I believe Brucio. Someone might get upset thinking the U.S. is out of the cup so just a heads up.

Is it interesting to note that Chicago have secured the date of 10 October for friendly w/ Cruz Azul ... the same date that B****** and the Gals were scheduled to play Copa Minnesota versus a team that was never announced. Could Cruz Azul have been the team that was never announced? Wonder who will be the opponent for Becky and the Gals for the yet to be rescheduled Copa Minnesota at the HHH Metrodome.

Raises hand (regarding Chivas).

Next year, I'll gladly take pre-season predictions from readers (I'll start some kind of website to accept them) to be compared at various times as the season progresses.
