I think both teams play very defensively and timid, knowing just a tie gets them both through. I say it ends in 0-0 or 1-1 tie.

Either that or something in the desert. The Moab idea sounds cool, or maybe Grand Canyon. Do white water rafting, hiking, sky diving would be incredible ther...

- no cash ever needed. It's billed to the credit card on your account. The dr...
