Crystal ball

It's the day before the 2008 MLS season opens, which is the perfect time to pick your MLS champion. Me, I decided on DC United. I see United winning their fifth league championship right here at Home Depot Center.

Please share with us your own predictions, whether it's the league champ, the MVP, goal-scoring leader, etc. Right now is the time to tell me you think RSL will shock the world, or that Houston will become the first club to win three cups in a row, or that the Galaxy will return to glory, or whatever club you fancy.

Not only does RSL make the playoffs, they go all the way to the final but come up a little short to the Wizards (you heard it here first folks).

Besides, I wanted to do a little something different than your usual Houston-New England or Chivas-DC United matchups everyone is predicting. =P

New York vs LA Galaxy final...think of the ratings? Galaxy wins 2-1 with an injury-time curling free kick from you-know-who.

I hope the Galaxy return to glory, but I don't see them winning it this year. At least I'm prepared to have my heart broken.

I'm picking DC United to win the Quadruple:
Champions Cup
SuperLiga
Supporters Shield
MLS Cup

- No US Open Cup victory for them

You guys can scratch DC, Houston, Revs and CUSA from wining anything...

Oh YES! The MLS CUP will return where it belongs.. L.A.!!!!
FORZA GALAXY!

Beckham, Ruiz, Donovan becomes the most hated attack in the league except they put in the goals to back it up.

I fully expect a repeat of 2005 where the Galaxy is middling to mediocre but destroys faces in the post-season.
