    There are 6 MLS playoff games this weekend: Atl/NE, Sea/Dal, Tor/DC, RSL/Por, Phi/NYRB, Min/LAG
    6. which game is most likely to go to penalty kicks?
    RSL/Por - 7
    Tor/DC - 2
    Phi/NYRB - 1


    (Correct answer: none of the above. Though we did get a bunch of overtime.)





    7. which game will be the highest scoring?
    Atl/NE - 7
    Min/LAG - 2
    Sea/Dal - 1


    (Bzzt, Atl/NE was actually the lowest-scoring! Phi/NYRB and Sea/Dal each had 7, and Tor/DC wound up with 6. Though all three of those did play an extra 30 minutes.

    So far, though, I think most folks are rating the single-game knockout format as a success.)







    8. which game is most likely to have the road team win?
    Phi/NYRB - 3
    Min/LAG - 3
    RSL/Por - 3

    Tor/DC - 1







    9. which game will be the biggest blowout?
    Atl/NE - 6
    Min/LAG - 1
    Sea/Dal - 1
    Tor/DC - 1
    Phi/NYRB - 1


    (Tor/DC ended up as a blowout after extra time, but they were tied after 90. And every other game was a 1-goal affair, extra time or not. So all 6 were close.)






    10. how many road teams will advance?
    2 - 4
    3 - 2
    5 - 2
    1 - 2



    (Correct answer: 1
    Minnesota finally had a good year, but I don't think too many folks are upset that we're going to get another El Trafico.)

    The correct answer for questions 3-4 is whomever were the bench players who didn't have to go in.

    11. were you at the groundbreaking last week?
    yes - 9
    no - 1






    12. Skittles, Starburst, or Smarties?
    Skittles - 5
    Starburst - 5



    (You goddamn Smarties haters!)







    13. who is most likely to win the Democratic Presidential nomination?
    Warren - 5
    Biden - 5







    14. who is second most likely to win the Democratic Presidential nomination?
    Biden - 5
    Warren - 3
    Sanders - 2






    15. name the USMNT's worst player in the game vs Canada
    Bradley - 6
    Ream - 2
    Pulisic - 1
    Yedlin - 1


    (Bradley's a fine choice, but Ream also would have been acceptable.)

    I for one prefer the aggregate playoff format for conference semifinals and finals. (And 6 teams!)

    Am I right in apologizing to KG for not following my heart/fandom and picking Penn State? Went with wrong SEC team too.
