Major League Soccer is in its third week and again all 20 teams are in action before the International Break. For the Colorado Rapids, it means a trip to Washington DC to face struggling D.C. United. Here is how the rest of the schedule breaks out:
Friday, 18 March 2016
NYCFC and OCSC are both coming off disappointing draws in which both felt they should have taken all three points. This match is a measuring stick for both second year teams and I think NYCFC gets the win

If I would have told you that the Fire would have more points than the Crew after two matches you would have said I am full of it. And yet, here we are. That being said, Columbus has way too much talent to not win this one.
The Dynamo kicked the crap out of Dallas last week and the Metros got their asses kicked in Montreal. This is another measuring stick match and I think that the Metros finally win and beat an overrated Dynamo team.
I like this match. A lot. Montreal is riding high after two huge wins and FCD will be licking their wounds after the ass kicking from last weekend. Dallas win.
Seattle and Vancouver are both struggling right now but are both better than their records would suggest. This will be a very good game that I think ends in a draw.
San Jose has yet to play away from home and LA will be happy to be home so they can't complain about altitude or wind. I do not know which of these teams are good or bad, but I am going to go with the home team.
I am pretty sure Portland will win this game. But....RSL can score, but they can't defend anything. Call it a Timbers win.

This is a weird game for me. It has the chance of being sneaky good and I have no reason why. So it will probably be a boring 0-0 tie. Regardless, this one has draw written all over it.
D.C. United vs Colorado Rapids--3:00 PM MDT--RFK Stadium--ESPN2
Well....Shkelzen Gashi is out for the Rapids. And DC is not a good team right now. Not sure what either has to do with the other, but screw it. Call this a Rapids upset win.
The game of the weekend is the last one. I like this one as a 2-2 draw and possible MLS Cup preview.
