The Chicago Fire look to end their 5-game winless streak tonight.  The Vancouver Whitecaps look to pick up their first road victory in MLS history.  Something's gotta give although it could end up being a tie.  Denis Hamlett returns to Chicago as an assitant coach with Vancouver.  The next Chicago Fire player to score the next goal will score the 100th Fire goal at Toyota Park.  For a look at the Vancouver Whitecaps, checkout Eighty Six Forever.  We checked in with the site for Three Questions and have the Game Preview here.

There are many lineup questions for the Fire we look forward to seeing answered.  My guess is Jon Conway will start but Sean Johnson could get the call.  Cory Gibbs and Josip Mikulic are looking to have better chances at going than earlier in the week but they still might be out.  If healthy, they both will start.  I'm off to Toyota Park to enjoy that first Guinness.  Yes, you could call me a fan of the brew.  If you are staying home tonight, you can catch the game on Comcast SportsNet at 7:30PM CST.  I'll be providing a little commentary here and feel free to share your hopes, thoughts, and insights below after the break.  I'm sticking with Chicago Fire 3 - Vancouver Whitecaps 2.  Dare to make any predictions yourself?
