The Sounders and Rapids will begin shortly. Check back here for updates, and fire those questions.
The Sounders have the kick.
1:31 in... Nice give-and-go play by Fredy Montero and Steve Zakuani along the side, but nothing comes of it.
3:07 ... Sounders get a corner kick when a long shot is deflected past the touchline. Colorado was able to stop the threat.
Programming note: FYI: The game is not being shown like an actual regular season TV game, the game is acting as the backdrop to the season preview with highlights mixed in, a Sounders spokesman just told us.
7:10 ... Zaukuani, wearing some bright orange cleats, takes a wild shot over the goal. So far the Sounders are keeping the action in the Rapids end of the field.
8:34 ... Colorado had a good chance after a Sounders defender slipped, but Conor Casey's shot was deflected by another defender and Keller was able to easily grab it.
10:12 ... Montero had some space in the middle about 30 yards out but winds up on the ground, Colorado prevails without a penalty.
11:38 ... Alvaro Fernandez is called offsides, ending a Sounders build up.
12:43... Colorado get its first corner. The Sounders head the cross out.
14:00.... Fredy Montero has a good chance inside the box, but never gets a shot off. His cross is deflected away.
15:07.... Colorado's Casy gets a shot off after a long downfield pass that almost surprised Keller, who was off his line. Keller recovered in time to catch the looping shot.
18:44 ... Parke gets called for pulling down a Colorado player. Rapids shot about 25 yards out, Keller comes out with the low-shot easily.
20:40... Nkufo gets called for wrestling down Jeff Larentowicz..
23:00 ... Good defending by Leo Gonzalez ends a run, but give Colorado a corner. Nothing comes of it, though.
25:45... Rapids had a nice run on a counter attack, but shot goes way wide. It have been a cross, but it was not close to threatening Keller.
29:40... Sounders have the ball in midfield, but the Rapids have had the better of them over the last 5 minutes or so.
33:53... Montero is whistled after a battle. He doesn't agree with the call, but the ref's not buying it.
35:12... Fernandez is again whistled for being offsides, a disappointing end to a nice series of passes by Seattle that reversed the ball quickly to Fernandez along the sideline.
36:00.. Fernandez has a chance on a through ball but the keeper got it first.
39:25... Montero wins a ball at midfield to setup a breakaway with him and Nkufo vs. 3 Rapids defenders. Nkufo had a shot at about 15 yards but the keeper closed on him to block it way. Sounders had a corner but Colorado headed it out.
42:22... Ball into Colorado's box is bobbled by the keeper, Matt Pickens, but no Sounder is able to capitalize.
44:09... Omar Cummings and Zakuani are battling, and Zak gets whistled for the foul. The crowd was not pleased (nor was Zak).
45ish... Hurtado and Casey battle over a ball, Casey goes down, play is stopped and both players gets a lecture. And the foul? Yes, on the Sounders...
That wraps up the first half. The referees are meeting with Hurtado, but it must not have been too serious as he no begins heading to the locker.
