IDLE THOUGHTS
=============
9/27 Houston rolls to keep pace with Monterrey with a come-from-behind
     12-6 victory over Indianapolis.  Houston scored 8 4th quarter goals.
     La Raza's magic number to clinch the division remains at 1.
     Washington complicates things with a 3-2 overtime shootout win over
     Sacramento.  It snapped the Warthogs' 4-game losing streak.
     Washington wins the season series with the Knights
     and pulls within one of 5th place Anaheim.  The Splash lost in
     overtime to the Sockers, 8-7.  San Diego has won 4 in a row.  With
     both the Knights and Splash losing, Dallas clinches the 4th seed
     and home-field advantage in the first round of playoffs.
9/28 The Detroit Neon narrowed the gap between 5th and 8th to just one
     game with a 7-3 victory in Portland.  The Pride (10-18) finished the
     season on a 4-game losing streak (they ended the 1995 season on a
     8-game losing streak).  Sacramento (14-14), who went to the finals
     last year, barely made it to .500 with a 6-5 victory in San Diego
     (17-11).  San Diego's 4-game win streak was snapped, but they
     finished with 17 or more wins for all 4 CISL seasons.
9/29 Indianapolis (10-18), in their last game known as the Indianapolis
     Twisters, came up with a huge upset, beating the Monterrey La Raza
     (18-10), 8-7, and preventing La Raza from celebrating the division
     title just yet.  Luckily, Dallas (16-12) pulled out a thrilling
     8-7 victory in overtime over Houston (18-10), who could have clinched
     the East title with a win.  Houston's 4-game win streak was snapped.
     Dallas won their 13th straight game at Reunion Arena.
     So Monterrey gets the #1 seed and the division title and Houston
     winds up with the #3 seed.  Anaheim (15-13) scored five straight
     goals to upend Washington (13-15), 8-3, and to take the #5 seed.
     Seattle (10-18) became the last team to pick up 10 wins, the first
     time every CISL team won at least 10 games in the same season, with
     its 11-5 crushing victory over Detroit (13-15).  Detroit missed a
     chance to finish the #6 seed; instead it will get the #8 seed and
     travel to Monterrey to open their first playoff season.  Sacramento
     is the #6 seed and Washington #7.

#2D vs. #7, #3 vs. #6, and #4 vs. #5.  Each series will be a best-of-three

one and three over a non-division winner team (#3 through #8) with a better
record).
