Game Thread: Dynamo at Fire, 2012 MLS Playoffs - Wild Card Play-In Game

The Dynamo face a "one and done" wild card play-in against the Chicago Fire at Toyota Park

Well, here we are, the playoffs. If Houston wants to make another surprise run to the MLS Cup final, it starts tonight with a "win or go home" game against the Chicago Fire. The Fire have dominated the Dynamo this season, but as the cliche goes, you can throw all that out the window...or something like that.

Not much on the injury front for either team. The Dynamo are healthy and the Fire have Cory Gibbs out and midfielder Guillermo Franco is doubtful,

The match is being televised on ESPN2.

As always have fun, keep it reasonably clean and respect your fellow fans. Always tip your servers and remember, try the veal.

Houston Dynamo starting lineup (4-4-2): Tally Hall; Kofi Sarkodie, Bobby Boswell, Jermaine Taylor, Corey Ashe; Ricardo Clark, Adam Moffat, Boniek Garcia, Brad Davis; Will Bruin, Calen Carr.

Chicago Fire starting lineup (4-4-2): Sean Johnson; Jalil Anibaba, Arne Friedrich, Austin Berry, Gonzalo Segares; Alvaro Fernandez, Logan Pause, Pavel Pardo, Patrick Nyarko; Chris Rolfe, Sherjill MacDonald.
