GameThread 19: D.C. United Vs. Houston Dynamo

D.C. United has a home win and a road loss to the Houston Dynamo already this season. They meet for the third time tonight. As you may have heard before, United has never won in Houston. Never. With the team fighting to stay on top of the Eastern Conference, now seems like a darn good time to change that.

Game time: 9:00 PM

Television: Comcast SporsNet and Galavision

Projected starting lineup: It would be a surprise to see more than one change to the lineup that so utterly dismantled the Montreal Impact at RFK Stadium in United's last match two weeks ago. The only likely change is that Danny Cruz will fill in for Andy Najar as the Honduran is away preparing for the Olympics. The rest of the midfield will feature Chris Pontius once again on the left with Branko Boskovic and Perry Kitchen in the midfield. Daniel Woolard, Dejan Jakovic, Brandon McDonald, and Robbie Russell will try to keep their scoreless streak alive in defense. Dwayne De Rosario will be partnered by either Hamdi Salihi or Maicon Santos up top, and Bill Hamid will start in goal.

Prediction: This Houston side won't be an easy out. I'm predicting a 1-1 draw.

What are you drinking? I'm just getting back from a week at the beach, so I've done my fair share of alcohol consumption for a bit. My drink of choice last night was a very dangerously tasty combination of root beer and Whipped vodka.
