to all the disappointed crew fans, I'm afraid their loss to the revs may be my fault. let me explain; when rumours were swirling that the all star match would be mls best vs real madrid I jumped aboard a thread and said that all madrid had to do was win its last two matches against bottom table teams to assure their place in the champions league and thus book their ticket to america to take on our all-stars. well, sorry madrid, my prediction bought you a trip to champions league qualifying. there in, my first strike. next, I climb aboard another thread declaring my intention to be in columbus on nov 6 for their home eastern conference championship match. for you see poor crew fans, I noted that the crew's path to mls cup went through the lowly revolution. strike two. now I shall see no live mls action this year and the crew fans can blame me. truly sorry yo, I shall bring an end to voicing predictions on big soccer.
