Quick Saturday recap and Sunday predictions

I was able to see the second half of the Colorado-Houston game. The Dynamo are back, huh? DDR's first goal was a thing of beauty, great left footed blast from about 20 yards out. Eddie Robinson should've been carded for his forearm/shoulder shiver he delivered to Roberto Brown. Maybe Eddie was getting revenge for CJ Brown earlier this year, it was a pretty hard shot.

I guess the Stormin' Mormons like playing for Jason Kreis. Great comeback for RSL against New York, two goals at the death to get a 3-3 draw. Chris Brown's goal to tie was absurdly good. The Clint Mathis Resurgence also continues with Cleetus getting two.

I just saw the brief highlights of KC-Columbus. Burciaga scores in the 90th minute to win it for the Wiz. Our Columbus fan-friend was raving about the KC defense. Guille made his Crew debut, so good things are on the way for Columbus once he really gets settled in.

Your predictions for Sunday:

DC-Chivas USA, 3:00 ET (TeleFutura)
United finally put a point on the board with a draw against New England, while Chivas is coming off their disappointing loss in the SuperClasico. As a United fan, I'll be satisfied with a draw here. They'll be playing on short rest against a very good offensive team. I hate to say though, that I'm not very confident in DC's defense.
DC 1, Chivas 2

New England-Chicago, 5:00 ET (DK)
The Revs are also on short rest, with Chicago coming in after a win over Houston last Sunday. I'm still not sold on the Fire based on what I've seen from them. The Revs aren't as strong as they were last year, but they're still tough to deal with.
New England 1, Chicago 0
