It's game day. And a big game day at that. The Sounders have suffered consecutive 4-0 losses to teams as diverse as the San Jose Earthquakes and FC Barcelona ... and there is no shortage of teams in striking distance from behind in the league standings.
One of the teams not too far behind is tonight's opponent: Real Salt Lake.
I'm taking some time off this weekend, but the game is previewed by Gail Wood, focusing mostly on Raphael Cox, formerly of UW and Tacoma's Stadium High, and now with RSL. Here's that story.
And here's a pretty interesting look at RSL from the Deseret News in Utah.
This is going to be the first game that I'm not going to be able to see in person or even on TV, so I won't be able to blog. But I'll try to create a new entry later today so that you guys can gather to discuss the game as usual ... or ,for that matter, to tell me what I missed.
