Match Preview: Union vs. New England Revolution

Sunday, August 28 @ 7pm, PPL Park in Chester, PA

Match prediction:  This match won’t get played.

Hurricane Irene is going to rip the East Coast a new one, engulfing us in perilous amounts of rain and wind.  On second thought, maybe the wind will help Sebastien Le Toux’s corner kicks actually bend……  but I digress.  I think the weather is going to render the pitch unplayable.  Which may or may not be a good thing, based on their recent performances.  I think they need more practice time to get used to the Ruiz-less lineup that they still haven’t adjusted to yet.  And there’s that Freddy Adu guy that still needs to be worked in to the mix.  Maybe they can also use the rainy day and watch a movie called “Union vs Toronto FC from May 28, 2011.”  I know that’s one of MY favorites.

The other aspect to consider are the faithful supporters who will brave the elements to attend this match.  I think the match should be postponed in advance of this weather event to save the supporters from themselves.  The match against Seattle showed that not all ticket-holding fans will show up during a rainy game, but a significant number of fans did.  And this storm Sunday is not a run-of-the-Seattle-mill rain storm.  There’s nothing I would rather have to round off my weekend than a Union shellacking of the Rev’s, but in the interest of public safety, this match should be played another day.  We’ll have fun watching New England lose regardless of what date it’s actually played, so we can stow this game away for a rainy day.  Oh, wait, nevermind.
