The Sounders 1-1 draw with Houston last night (TNT photo gallery here) sort of clears the decks for a lot of other soccer today.
Here's the Saturday schedule in MLS:
Toronto FC vs. Portland Timbers, 11 a.m. (FSN)Chicago Fire vs. Sporting Kansas City, 1 p.m. (TeleFutura)Columbus Crew vs. New York Red Bulls, 1 p.m.Philadelphia Union vs. Vancouver Whitecaps FC, 1 p.m.New England Revolution vs. D.C. United, 1:30 p.m.FC Dallas vs. San Jose Earthquakes, 6 p.m.Real Salt Lake vs. LA Galaxy, 6 p.m.Chivas USA vs. Colorado Rapids, 7:30 p.m.
Then, at 4 p.m., the US national team will meet Argentina in a friendly on ESPN2.
Never miss a local story.
I'm very eager to check Timbers-Toronto (though I'll have to DVR due to Sounders training), and then of course the national team (in its new red jerseys). And we can keep this post open all day for comments on all of it.
