Early impressions: Sort of front-loaded with home games, probably clearing out for Seahawks weekend dates. Could work for or against the team. (Most likely: for early, against late.)

... Starting and ending at home is always nice. ... Three friendlies that will be complete the 18-game season ticket package will be announced later.

Dates to circle: March 19, the opener; April 4, first road game at another wildly successful expansion city; April 25, first visit from old NASL side; May 10, first chants of "Beat LA" in Qwest Field; May 30, MLS champions/Sigi's old team visits.
