Before MLS Cup on Sunday Nov. 20, MLSsoccer.com hosted the MLS Cup Prediction Challenge, where fans were asked to answer ten questions about the upcoming game on Facebook. Those who correctly answered all the questions would then be entered into a random drawing for a chance to win an autographed jersey by either the LA Galaxy or the Houston Dynamo, but there was only one person who predicted all the answers correctly: Paul Dombrowski from Amesbury, MA.
