Cold Colorado could affect Sounders lineup

Coach Schmid Schmid agreed weather could be a factor in the game, and especially with his lineup.

On today's snow: It may alter some things. Guys who are coming off muscle injures or so forthyou have to be a little bit careful with because the cold weather is a little bit harder to play in.

On Clint Dempsey's hamstring: He got through training today great. So we’ll see how he is tomorrow and

then we’ll make our determinations as we go forward. With him, again the cold weather could impact it a little bit. And then it’s a question of how does he feel? Does he feel he can start? Does he feel he can come off the bench? Does he feel it’s maybe too early. He’s a veteran player, so you’ve got to trust that.
