Oh my goodness me, the 2015 Audi MLS Cup Playoffs are upon us! Glory be! Doesn't that phrase just roll off the tongue? 2015 Audi MLS Cup Playoffs. And wouldn't you know it, the Seattle Sounders are going to represent the #4 seed in the West. It's a good time to be a fan of Seattle or even soccer in general because the 2015 Audi MLS Cup Playoffs are just the coolest of the cool when it comes to random, knockout, all-glory-to-the-winner playoff systems that we so love here in America.
And Canada? Holy shit, we actually have Canadian teams in the 2015 Audi MLS Cup Playoffs. Wait, wait, we have three Canadian teams this year? Did they start playing their home games on ice or something? Cheap jokes out of the way, this year the playoff format has changed because who doesn't love a playoff systems that's constantly in flux from year to year. It looks very similar to the system the NFL currently uses, with seeds 3-6 facing off in a play-in match in order to earn the rights to battle the top two seeds who get a bye into the conference semifinals.
But surely you know all about the playoffs already. You're reading Sounder at Heart so you're assuredly intelligent, attractive, and you've never met a dog that didn't instantly love you. What you really want is what I promised you: a prediction to this year's playoffs. So let's get started, shall we?
Which Horror villain best represents each playoff team?
With Halloween falling squarely between the knockout rounds and conference semifinals, it only seems to make sense to honor All Hallows' Eve with an homage to our heroes of horror. Assigning each team a villain allows me the opportunity to really take the incidentals surrounding each team out of the equation and really get down to the nitty-gritty, a mano e mano slugfest set under the confines of the Thunderdome: one team leaves.
