Sounders finish practice, Galaxy ready for game

The Sounders are off the rainy practice pitch for another day without much news breaking.

I spoke to Peter Vagenas -- who was the only player expected not to be available this week -- and he said he might be available this week. And, of course, he'd love to return this weekend, since the Sounders are facing his old team: the LA Galaxy.

We also asked coach Sigi Schmid about the game against his one of his former teams -- and the only one that fired him -- but he gave the respectful, professional just-another-game-worth-three-points answer. Still, I'll prop that up into a full story for tomorrow's paper.

Meanwhile, things are probably a little more active with the Galaxy, who aren't yet focusing on Seattle, but instead on Real Salt Lake, who they visit tonight. Here's a preview of that one, from the MLS site.
