HRB Prediction Table: Will Our Picks Finally Come to Fruition vs. Colorado?

We were so off the mark last week that we called on the Village People for help. Seriously.

MLS: Portland Timbers at New York City FC Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Last game was terrible for the writers at Hudson River Blue. Not only did NYCFC lose, but also because of their terrible showing Andrea Pirlo’s mistake, our writers failed miserably. Based on the staff predicting a sound New York City victory, not a Portland 1-0 win, only two writers picked up more than zero points. Overall, a week to forget at HRB. A quick refresher, a point is earned by getting the final score, outcome of the game, NYCFC Man of the Match, or first scorer correct.

Check out everyone’s picks from the game:

For NYCFC’s next game, they go west where the skies are blue, and where it is really hard to play sports due to the altitude.

The game against the Colorado Rapids kicks off at 9PM EST. Tactics. Opposition Analysis. Photoshop. We’ve got you covered.
