How to watch

Projected lineups: With all the Gold Cup call ups that FCD is dealing with, I believe we'll see a defense that could see some difference faces in it tonight with Ryan Hollingshead possibly moving to the back, or Michel. Or Oscar Pareja could be wise and place Zach Loyd at left back with Walker Zimmerman in the middle alongside Matt Hedges. The midfield shouldn't see too many changes and with Blas Perez gone, it means we're stuck with David Texeira for another match up top.

Prediction: Like I stated in our game preview, I'm going with a 2-1 win. Three points or bust in every game this month if you ask me.

What are you drinking?: I'm taking this one in at a friend's house tonight, so we'll be drinking some whiskey.
