First goal of the season prediction thread.

Post by aleppiek on Tue Aug 19, 2008 2:58 pm

Alright folks, just to kill the time between now and the kickoff on Sat. Who do you expect to score the first goal of the season? Will it be the obvious? Michelle, Rachel, Megan? Will it be a newcomer? Foxhoven, Burk?

Bragging rights are at stake people!!!

Bonus points... how long into the Pilots 2008 campaign will we have to wait for our first strike?


I CANT WAIT!!!

I'll go first... I see the Oregon game as a re-emergence of Megan Rapinoe

Who I think the entire Pilots squad will want to get going early... I predict a 19th minute tally.

I'll take the easy way out. I'll say Michelle, in the 27th minute. (I guess that covers me if it happens to be Olivier on a header off a corner kick.)

Megan Rapinoe. 15th minute. Cool

Shall I collect my winnings now, or wait until the goal is scored?

Own goal by the Oregon freshman goalkeeper? Ha!

Seriously, I'll go with Michelle Enyeart in the 10th minute on an assist from Megan Rapinoe.

After taking a bit to gel, I'll say Keelin Winters on a header off of a corner (after some nifty buildup) in the 33rd.

That's cheating. You have to declare which Michelle.

OK, I'll take Olivier. Somebody has to stick up for the defense. 23rd minute.

You are going to have trouble collecting. The team said they are all staying for the closing ceremony. That's Friday night. No way she'll be back.

Ok, now that the safe bets are in I'm going to take the long shots, if they are playing. I'll take Charney or Danielle.

Rumor has it that they have been shooting the lights out since practice started.......

Wanderer... any predicition on how long into the game?

I love that all the usual suspects have checked in on this... It is also awesome some of the detail that have gone into the buildup etc... I can tell you all have been daydreaming just like I have.

Great post, aleppiek. And the pic is clear, clean and just about perfect in every way!

Maybe Sophie could grow wings and fly home in time for the match...

GEEZER'S EDICT

Oops! Missed that, geezer.

Correction Everyone: The Games' Closing Ceremony has been moved up from Sunday night to Friday night!!! That change, from a Purplegeezer edict that better fits his schedule, has been accepted by the Chinese.

(Fortunately, the thousands of Chinese performers from the Opening Ceremony will have to suffer sitting in their diapers for two less days. I think they thank you, geezer, more than anyone else.)

uhh... FANatic...


When you make an edict, you don't ask permission from the Chinese or anyone else....
