The two biggest stars in the MLS throwdown to see who makes the playoffs. Injury ridden Beckham vs. the Fire Eagle Blanco. Should the Galaxy win vs. the Fire, FC Dallas must beat the Kansas City Wizards and Real Salt Lake must draw or win against the Colorado Rapids, then the Galaxy makes the playoffs. The Chicago Fire control their own destiny. This game has been super hyped because the two top players are playing in a regular season game the means something. Well, one of them at least. Beckham is still hurt and probably will be playing as a sub. He came as a sub last game and sucked more than Jenna Jamison. Don't be fooled though. Just because Beckham isn't playing doens't mean there's no chance for the Galaxy to win. The Galaxy actually play better without Beckham in the lineup because Galaxy Head Coach Frank Yallop can't handle the media pressure with Becks in the lineup.
Prediction: Fire take a dump on the Galaxy 2-1 to make the playoffs.
