Knockout Round Open Thread

Victor Decolongon

Let's laugh and point at the teams who have to play an extra playoff round.

Here's a thread for those games featuring the poor schmoes who have to play a midweek game to prove they belong in the playoffs.

Tonight Chicago takes on Houston on ESPN2. Houston is the only team that Seattle would host the MLS Cup Final against, so go Dynamo I guess! One down.

Tonight it's the Galaxy versus the Whitecaps, and I can only assume the right team to root for here is Vancouver, for Cascadia Pride. . and also facing weaker teams. Then again, LA is more likely to defeat SJ, which would potentially give Seattle 'home field advantage' in the two-legged series. On the gripping hand, an LA loss would start all of the Donovan/Beckham retirement talk in earnest, and that would be fun for the weekend.
