|Spot loves soccer bags. It's her way.
Spot - Scoreless draw.After losing last week in the competition, I thought Spot would be clamoring to get back on track. However, she remained elusive when asking her about the match. To each question, it was her "Nyuh" face and walking away. Maybe she knows something we all don't, but I interpreted her action to no goals for anybody.
|Tortie is hiding but she can still predict soccer.
Tortie - 7 to 5 Timbers.Tortie was very excited about everything, as there was tons of eeps and meows. I counted 7 for Portland, 5 for New England and two head butts for the morning food choice of Purine One Hairball formula, so we'll go with that. This food doesn't seem to create as many hairballs as I thought it might, though.
|GB asks where is the food. Seriously, I can't find it.
GB - 3 to 1 Revolution.When I asked about this match, GB was very unresponsive early in the questioning, being rather coy in his responses. When Jennifer finally asked about the result by saying, "If New England will win, look away from me.", GB complied and looked down at the couch. With 3 thumps of his tail and 1 head butt afterwards, GB predicts the home fans won't leave Providence Park very happy.
|Scarf plus Vegas equals good.
Kip - 3 to 1 Timbers.Stop me if this sounds familiar - a match up of two sides with impressive offensive players but defenses that could be questionable. New England has a solid collective of attacking options - Juan Agudelo, Diego Fagundez, Kei Kamara, Daigo Kobayashi, Lee Nguyen - and midfielders that can churn about, but it's been the defense and a relatively unknown keeper that have been question marks. Portland is a bit cranky after the loss to the Crew, so I expect them to be better prepared, especially with a Nagbe and Guzman available.
