Today on national TV, the Seattle Sounders face the Los Angeles Galaxy. I don’t need to tell you this is THE premier matchup in MLS. I do need to tell you my bold prediction.
BOLD PREDICTION: Seattle is being run ragged with fixture congestion. L.A. is killing it at home. Seattle doesn’t have the band back together yet, L.A. keeps getting stronger. I want a result here, but expect a loss. L.A. wins 2-0.
BOLD PREDICTION #2: This is Seattle’s last loss of the regular season. Mark it.
BOLD PREDICTION #3: If, somehow, Seattle gets a result in L.A., I will credit it firmly to Pitch Black Magic. The last time we started a game wearing Pitch Black (didn’t finish) was the USOC debacle vs Portland. Then the terrible run began. We finally earned a result in another non-MLS game against a Canadian rival. Coincidentally in a game where we started and finished in our Pitch Black Kits. Hmmmmmm. I am hoping for some #PitchBlackMagic today in Carson.
