Here's our take on five things to watch during the new season.
Here's the schedule, with five games on tap today.
That schedule was greeted with a great quote from Sounders coach Sigi Schmid, who seems more than happy to spend the first day as a fan.
Never miss a local story.
And, with no Sounders game to cover, I'm heading up to Vancouver, for the Whitecaps' First Kick game against Montreal at 3 p.m. It will be my first look at renovated BC Place, I'll get a chance to see Sebastien Le Toux, Lamar Neagle, Mike Fucito and others, and I'll post back some thoughts and highlights here.
