The MLS playoffs resume at 5:30 p.m., when New England visits Chicago.
The Revs go in with a one-goal lead.
Meanwhile, before the Sounders flew out on Friday, I was able to ask coach Sigi Schmid what he thought of the one MLS result so far: Real Salt Lake bumping off defending champion Columbus ... despite the lower seed and pitch disadvantage.
“Obviously it is sad for Columbus," he said. "I still have a lot of friends and people that I know on that team. But it shows what can happen in the playoffs. Over the course of a season and the Supporters’ Shield, the cream rises to the top. Once you get into a playoff situation, it’s like Fantasy Island – everybody’s dream can come true. Last night, Real Salt Lake’s dream came true. And we want to make our dream come true in Houston.”
