Use this space to discuss the game, why Chicago Fire are the only MLS team to have "Soccer Club" at the end of their name, and whether or not you think this match will have the same result as the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals. But whatever you use this space to post illegal streams, troll, or attack others. Chicago Fire fans are welcome to join the discussion, but don't be a douche bag. As someone who has been on this network for a long time, it is very easy to tell the difference between someone well-meaning, and someone whose sole purpose is to incite a reaction out of others.

Prediction: Having only played one game, the Chicago Fire are not giving me much at all to go by. But factoring it is a road game and the Union got worse over the off-season, I am predicting a 2-1 Chicago Fire win. Here's hoping I'm wrong!

Game time is 8:30 PM on The Comcast Network.
