LA will win some silverware this season
Yep, you've heard it here first. LA will win the Open Cup. Why? Cuz Steve Sampson has to, that's why
. He's not going to take Minnesota lightly tomorrow. Even with their ringer from RSL, the Thunder will have a though time at the HDC. LA will get the Final at home--the only place they can win--and Sampson will have a great argument to keep his job next season. Not that winning cups helped Sigi Schmid, but I've a feeling it'll be enough.
Of course, LA will be playing Chicago in the final (ah, memories of those Semi-finals from a few years ago in Fullerton...great matches) and LA will prevail. Why Chicago? Well, Chicago play Dallas at PHP tomorrow. Dallas don't stand a chance. Besides, I heard a rumor that Ruiz will be hoping a new Hooters instead of showing up to the match.
Anyway, you heard it here first and I accept no responsibility for any lost money anyone places on the games based on my predictions here.
