    Lloyd was happy to have a one in a milllion chance of getting his girl.

    "You're saying I have a chance!"

    Why does everyone just keep saying we are not going to make the playoffs? I don't care about probabilities (or in this case, EXTREME probablility). The best part about sports is being their for the spectacular things that happen. To hope for that little chance of something extraordinary to happen. RSL has a chance to make one hell of a history in MLS by being the worst team with 11 games to go, to turning it into a magical season. And I am going in game-in-game-out hoping for the magical side to show through.

    Whose with me, yay or nay?

    Which one is yes?

    Well, yes of course we have a chance. And it realistically is probably closer to 1 in a 1000 than 1 in a million.

    the only "girl" i want RSL to get at this point is the Rocky Mountain Cup, just so we can tell the crapids fans to go ******** themselves.

    how would this be, RSL goes on an absolute tear, finishing the season 6-0-3 for a final record of 10-11-9 good for 39 points. colorado fininshes 3-2-2 for a final record of 10-11-9. heres the best part, RSL wins the final two RMC games, their seasons come down to the final game, RSL @ cRapids, RSL must win to make the playoffs. RSL wins 2-1 in a thriller securing their first Rocky Mountain Cup and their first ever playoffs.

    /end wet dream

    back to reality, here is what i honestly see happening. we go 3-3-3 to finish the season (still winning the rocky mountain cup with a win at colorado in the final game of the season, we will have nothing more to play for except winning the RMC and pissing off the cRapids). our final record stands at 7-14-9, for 30 points. we finish in 11th place ahead of the galaxy and toronto fc.

    Yeah and which one was Lloyd, Dumb or Dumber?

    Maybe this is more appropriate.

    If you're likening RSL's season to "Dumb and Dumber", I'm a little surprised you didn't go for the obvious parallel: Harry on the toilet.

    Besides, if we don't make the playoffs, we can always say, "Husband? Wait a minute...what was that 'one in a million' talk?"

    And because I'm bored...

    Ellinger: Excuse me, Flo? Flo, like the TV show. ...uh, what is the Player Du Jour?
    Flo: It's the Player of the Day.
    Ellinger: Mmmm. That sounds good. I'll have that.

    Anschutz: Where did you get those?
    Guppy: I bought them when we filled up.
    Anschutz: We are supposed to talk about all expenditures, John. We are on a very tight budget.
    Guppy: This didn't come out of our travel fund.
    Anschutz: Oh.
    Guppy: Yeah, I was able to raise 25 extra bucks before we left.
    Anschutz: Where did you get 25 extra bucks?
    Guppy: I sold some stuff to Ellinger in Salt Lake.
    Anschutz: The blind kid?
    Guppy: Yeah, ha ha! Yeah.
    Anschutz: What did you sell him, John?
    Guppy: Stuff.
    Anschutz: What kinda stuff?
    Guppy: I don't know, a few baseball cards, a sack of marbles, *cough* Stewart.
    Anschutz: Stewart? You sold my dead defender to a blind kid? John! Stewart didn't even have a head!
    Guppy: Phil, I took care of it...
    Ellinger: Pretty bird, yeah, can you say pretty bird? Pretty bird, yeah pretty bird... Johnny want a cracker?

    Can I just say this is my favorite movie of all time and I absolutely love this thread?

    Clavijo: I expected the Rocky Mountain Cup to be a little rockier than this.
    Mastroeni: I was just thinking the same thing. That John Ellinger's full of shit, man.
    Ellinger (at practice): Hey guys.......soccer balls, huh? All right. Well, see ya later.
    Checketts: What the.......where's the money!?
    Tom Dolan: That's as good as money, sir. Those are IOU's. Go ahead, add it up - every cent's accounted for. See this one? That's for a car......375 thou. Might want to hang on to that one.
    and finally, to continue what Noodles started.....
    Checketts: What's the matter, John?
    Howes: You know our central defender Jack? He's dead!
    Checketts: Oh no! What happened?
    Howes: His head fell off!
    Checketts: His head fell off?
    Howes: Yeah, he was pretty old.
    Checketts: That's it - I've had it with this dump! We've got no stadium, we've got no wins, our players' HEADS ARE FALLIN' OFF! We've got to get out of this town.
    Howes: And go where?
    Checketts: I'll tell you where. Someplace warm. A place where the beer flows like wine. Where women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking about a little place called St. Louis.
    Howes: OK Dave, St. Louis it is.

    I'd love to see it happen. I'd cheer loudly.

    However, if I were Kreis or elsewhere in management, I wouldn't be playing for the playoffs this year. I'd be putting everyone on notice that they were practicing and playing for their jobs next year, for not suffering the ignomy of being left off the protected roster, and so forth. If that results in playoffs, great, but my focus would be on figuring out how to make the team solid in the off season by determining who will be worth keeping before looking to add.
