A set of Wednesday MLS matches makes the league feel like it is back in 1999 again.
Everybody likes a good Wednesday MLS match. They're not on national TV, there aren't that many people there and a lot of people like to pretend they don't exist. It's like being back in MLS circa 1999 and we all know how cool vintage is.

Back in 1999 these two teams were relevant. That was cool for them.
Pick: 1-1, Colorado wins in a shootout.

With their rave green and other unappealing colors that nobody would ever wear ever, the Sounders fit into vintage MLS perfectly. If only they were called the Mighty Sound.
In 2012, we're trying to figure out what to make of both the Sounders and Galaxy. This match won't be definitive and it may not be particularly insightful, but at the very least we can pretend it is definitive and very insightful.
Pick: Seattle, 2-1.

Both of these teams are good! It is totally vintage MLS.
Pick: San Jose, 3-1.
