It's Not Disrespect
I will have a preview up. It's just been one of those days. Probably tomorrow afternoon, unless one of my cowriters gets to it before I do.
Anyways, the soccer intelligencia have pretty much decided that New England is likely to win this weekend. I get that. If you look at things completley dispassionately, you say that even with the doubtful Clint Dempsey, New England came back from 2-nil against Chicago. You think that the Revs have looked much better over the last two months than United. You think "Man, when will DC ever put it all together."
I get all that. It's not even like people are disrespecting DC United when they say such things. Hell, Steve Goff has to face these guys in the locker room after the game, and even he picked a Houston-New England Cup Final. It's a cold, hard, stark fact -- DC has sucked enough to look like a pattern, and New England has not.
And yet... in the constant battle between my head and my heart, my heart will win. And my heart is what will be screaming on Sunday. I wouldn't bet my house on it, but I would bet my soul.
