My pick (and Sam's) to win and repeat as MLS Cup Champions were eliminated by FC Dallas after a 1-1 draw in Salt Lake City. Kevin Hartman kept RSL from tying the aggregate score and the loss of Javier Morales proved to be too much to overcome. These two were probably the best all around team in MLS going into the playoffs.
Dallas will take on the winner of the LA-Seattle matchup. If the Galaxy win the Western Conference will be decided next weekend at the Home Depot Center. If Seattle wins, the conference championship match will be played in front of about 10,000 Texans at Pizza Hut Park.
