A Challenge To New York Fans

This blog exists, in part, to indulge my propensity for making juvenile bets. And with MLS all a-twitter over FC Barcelona's visit, let's put the challenge out there once again.

Readers may remember a bet between this blog and Chelsea Blog over the friendly played last year. The DCenters lost, and had to put Chelea's final score victory on our sidebar for a month, in blue and white. Still, I was proud of my DC United, and felt they represented MLS pretty damn well. So I challenge you, bloggers and website operators that support New York, can they step it up?

We can discuss the various forfeits that will need to be played, but here are my terms. Do you believe that the New York Red Bulls will represent MLS better than DC United did against Chelsea? I will agree they will have done so if they meet any of the following three conditions:

  1. New York defeats FC Barcelona.
  2. New York achieves a non-scoreless draw with FC Barcelona.
  3. New York leads during the game for more than four minutes, and then are defeated by no more than one goal.

So what say you, bloggers or website operators that support New York. Are you game? If so, drop an email or a comment, and we can discuss terms. If nothing else, we will learn this: Does Red Bull give you courage?

Any rumors yet on another EPL vs DCU match? Or any other friendlies?

I'm not above taking a risk now and then, but this sounds like just a little bit of a sucker bet. I mean, as long as we don't what combination of Chinaglia, Mattheus, Sakiewicz, Donadoni, Bora, Sven Goran the Unstoppable Sex Machine, and Prof. Julio Mazzei is going to be running the team in August.
