    I'm sure you've heard of ghoul pools by now. Well, here's a goal pool.

    DC United has failed to score during the last 531 minutes of play. The question is: At what minute will this goal scoring drought end?

    DC United has 7 matches left this season. That's a minimum of 630 minutes and a maximum (very unlikely) of 700 minutes more to play. So the scoreless streak could run up to 1161 minutes or even 1231 minutes if every match went to a zero-zero draw.

    Let's assume that this drought doesn't run until next season. So the range of choices is between 532 and 1231 minutes.

    So during what minute will our drought end? Please post your prediction below.

    * Everyone gets one (and only one) prediction.
    * No numbers may be repeated. So if someone else has already chosen the minute you wanted - well then, them's tough pattooties.
    * Whole numbers only folks. None of this 641 minutes and 33 seconds crap.
    * All choices are final. No editing. No changing your mind later.

    Deadline for entry is kickoff on Saturday against the Earthquakes.

    The poster whose prediction is closest to the actual minute when the drought ends - either above or below - wins.

    I know what you're saying. What's the prize?

    Bragging rights and the eternal awe of all the posters on the DC United board at

    And that prize truly is priceless - which means it's really, really good or really, really cheap. :)

    I don't think we'll score until next season. But, I think we'll get two more 0-0 ties.
