A few notes:
*The club will use Kevin Guppy as its emergency keeper tomorrow, which normal reserve keeper Terry Boss is with the Puerto Rican national team. Boss is expected back in time for the U.S. Open Cup final at Qwest on Tuesday against Columbus.
“Guppy has been down with Chivas (USA), that’s where he trains down in L.A. He played for Cal State Northridge," Schmid said. "Since they (Chivas) have a game on Sunday, we were able to request him for our game on Saturday. With the injury to Dan Kennedy, he has almost been with them full-time. So he gets up here today in the afternoon and he will be there for the game tomorrow.”
*Seattle Mariners shortstop Jack Wilson watched practice today, and even took a few kicks. He apparently played at a pretty elite level in high school before picked baseball over soccer. He is on the Mariners' disabled list due to a fractured bone in his right hand.
*General manager Adrian Hanauer said he doesn't expect the Washington Huskies' football team playing its 2012 season at Qwest Field will make a major impact on the Sounders' schedule that season.
*Hanauer also confirmed that the Sounders will have new kits in 2011, but he didn't give away anything about them nor did he confirm or deny the authenticity of purported leaked versions showing up on the Internet.
