Late, Outomiass* Week 8 Picks

I had grand plans for this post, truly grand. But life and work got to humping my leg some time yesterday and distracted me from seeing to this business. With only 45 minutes or so separating me from the kick-off of the weekend's action, however, I'm just going to lay down my outomiass (*mean "out of my ass") picks for Week 8 and call it good.

Here, quick as can be, is what I'm seeing in this weekend's games.

New England Revolution beats Kansas City Wizards (my guess, 1-0)
Columbus Crew loses to Toronto FC (another 1-0, or rather, 0-1 to TFC)
DC United loses to the Houston Dynamo (another one-goal game)
Colorado Rapids make The Richard feel like home over the LA Galaxy (2-1)
Chivas USA continues to suck while FC Dallas guts out another cheap-y (0-2)

And, on Sunday, I'm thinking that even the Chicago Fire can't lose to Real Salt Lake; the Fire posts a nearly unwatchable 1-0 win.

How refreshing to find a team that won't let Houston kill the league with its one goal bore-fests. Yay DC!

Okay, I am now ready to believe that DC United is not destined for a season of dwelling in the basement. It'll take two more wins to believe that they're ready to challenge for the top.

Hey d. I'm having trouble figuring what the past three wins have told me about DC; and that tells me, in turn, that it's past time I paid more attention to the Red & Black.

Still, congrats on the win, as well as the slow (inexorable?) climb up the table.
