THE MATCHUP: Mo to unveil 5-year plan to battle altitude

------John Denver + 10 Muppets = 11. Mo Johnston has an idea...

COLORADO RAPIDS (8th) VS. TORONTO FC (10th)
 
Dick's Sporting Goods Park - 5:00PM EST
TV: GOLTV -----RADIO: THE FAN 590
 
Toronto FC's spirits may be a bit higher after their 2-1 win over the 10-man Union but their game will need to be elevated if they want a result in the Mile High City - well, the Mile High Suburbs at least. Three matches in eight days is no easy task for any club but TFC desperately needs to show some consistency and also the ability to get some points on the road. "The Dick" isn't exactly a fierce place to visit but if Toronto makes the poor mistakes they did against Philly, they will be punished often.
 
You can forgive Rapids supporters (Hello, you four!) for thinking it's a split squad match as TFC is stacked full of former Maroons. However, can our Re-Rapids return for some Rocky revenge? No less than five Reds have played for Rapids - Dan Gargan "Tuan", Ty "Tryin' Hard" Harden, Adrian "Yes We" Cann, Nick LaBrocca “nd roll all night” and Jacob "Too Plain for Nickname" Peterson. Perhaps these Colorado vets can give some insight into the mind of your average Rapid. If it works, Mo can go out and trade for half of the next opponents every week!
 
Rapids are an improved club this year and boast a wide range of TFC killers. Big man on campus Conor Casey is supported by return Red-killer Mehdi "Jim/John" Ballouchy and their new explosive centreback - American International Marvell Wynne. We hear great things about Wynne who has adapted instantly to a new CB role. Wow, whatever club had him before Colorado must be really kicking themselves! Wish we could have an explosive centreback. (No, Garcia - not implosive... go away.) Either way, it's going to be a hard one for TFC when they have to face Mile High Dick's on little rest.
 
What?

  1. Tough match tomorrow but I think they can get a tie at least. I like "Yes we" Can!

  2. Yeah, the idiot GM for trading Marvell Wynne should be tarred and feathered but BMO Field won't let tar in the stadium.

  3. Any chance of next weeks lottery numbers after that accurate prediction? Poor result.

  4. Ha Ricky! If we could do lottery numbers we'd be on a tropical island somewhere or buying an NASL team for Scarborough! Picking road loss scores for TFC is hardly Nostradamus-worthy!

    Cheers mate!
