|20 Fearless Predictions for the 2004 season.|
|5 and 1/2 points. Not bad and I could have given myself a bit more.|
|1. East finish: NE, DC, Chicago, Metro, and Columbus.|
Incorrect. Cbus, DC, Metro, NE and Chicago. Ok so I got DC right.
|2. West Finish: SJ, LA, Dallas, KC, and Colorado.|
Incorrect. KC, LA, Col, SJ, Dallas. Again LA right, two for two on second place teams.
|3. Tim Hankinson will be fired and stunningly Greg Andrulis won’t be. |
BINGO!! (1 point) What do you mean Sigi got fired too? And who the hell is Steve Sampson?
|4. The US Open Cup will be won by LA, Cobi Jones will say they are the greatest team in US history.|
Incorrect. KC Wizards. Dang it.
|5. Landon Donovan will finally be MVP of MLS. |
ER no. Incorrect.
|6. San Jose Earthquakes will win the 2003 MLS Cup, beating DC United in the final. Landon Donovan will immediately announce he has been offered a contract by Liverpool, but being a big girl he has turned them down. |
Do we get points for DC making the final and for Landycakes getting an offer to go back?
|7. Taylor Twellman will lead MLS in scoring. |
Incorrect. Pat Noonan. We should get something for getting the right team.
|8. DeMarcus Beasley will be sold overseas and he will say “Unlike Landon I am not a big girl so I am going.”|
Corrent. Dang I am good at this. (1 point)
|9. Chivas (in LA) and Rochester will be expansion teams in 2005. Which means 48 players currently not in MLS will have to be added to MLS rosters next season. |
1/2 right, so 1/2 a point. Expansion. Finally.
|10. Alexi Lalas will resign when Club America takes over San Jose Earthquakes, changes their name to Club American USA, and moves them to Houston. |
No. Or not yet anyway.

|17. The Dallas Burn will announce that they have sold the naming rights to Frisco Stadium to Dr Pepper. That or an old folks home. |
