‘Favored’ FC Dallas faces confident Colorado
Forecasts of rain that could sodden the recently installed grass field at BMO Field added yet another nugget of intrigue as Colorado and FC Dallas finalized their preparations for MLS Cup 2010 to be played Sunday (TV: ESPN2, Galavision, 8:30 p.m. ET).
When MLS announced last spring that Toronto would host the 2010 MLS Cup in late N ovember, league officials deflected concerns about weather.
The game is nigh, and so are forecasts of wet, cold, perhaps windy conditions, which the Rapids believe will favor them.
No snow is forecast, as temperatures are supposed to be a few degrees above freezing. Yet gusts off Lake Ontario could push down temperatures enough for a few flurries to fall. Orange adidas balls that have been ordered will likely not be needed, yet a wet surface and cold, sharp winds are always factors.
