Sounders Insider

Saturday comes: Sounders at NY at 4:30

Gamday. And remember, of course, that with the three-time-zone difference, kickoff is 4:30 p.m. Pacific Time. The game will be shown on KONG. (And my listings show that KONG will be showing paid programming before the game. So, assuming that paid programming isn't college baseball, odds seem very good that Sounders coverage will start on time.)

As noted in my story from this morning's paper, this is likely to be the Sounders' only appearance ever at Giants Stadium, where Pele and the Cosmos once played. Next season, the team moves to Red Bull Arena, which looks to become one of the real showplaces of MLS.

Here's a preview from ESPN, which quantifies just how badly the Red Bulls are playing right now. Here's one from the Newark Star Ledger on the Bulls possibly playing for their coach's job.

Unfortunately, I'm not in New Jersey (and I hope you appreciate how rarely those words are used), however I'll open a new blog post just before gametime for in-game comments and postgame discussion. I also should be receiving some Sounders' postgame quotes, and I'll pass those along as soon as I get them.
