Houston Dynamo vs. Sporting Kansas City, LA Galaxy vs. San Jose Earthquakes Play Off Match Thread

Steve Dykes

Tonight sees two very big games in the 2012 MLS play offs with the 2012 MLS champions taking on the 2013 MLS Supporters Shield winners.

I don't know if you guys have been following the MLS play offs through the weekend or not, but it's been quite exciting! Oh wait... did I say exciting? I meant tedious. Of the two play off games that have happened so far over the weekend (Seattle Sounders vs. Real Salt Lake, DC United vs. New York Red Bulls) a grand total of two goals have been scored, of which two of those were own goals. Yeesh...

Which is why I'm hoping today's games are a bit more flavorful. With the California Clasico and a match up between Sporting Kansas City and the Houston Dynamo, we're bound to see at least a few goals, right? Right?!

Here's the info for today's games:

General Information

Eastern Conference: Houston Dynamo vs. Sporting Kansas City

Kick off: 12:30pm at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston
Watch it on: NBC
Sporting Kansas City: Finished with 63 points

Western Conference: LA Galaxy vs. San Jose Earthquakes

Final Thoughts

Not much to say about the upcoming games. The California Clasico is likely to be the more entertaining of the two matches given the rivalry between the two teams and San Jose's knack for scoring goals. However, if you're like me, then you care more about the Eastern Conference because every team in the west other than the Timbers can go to hell... or something like that. You can be more polite about it if you want.
