I'm helping out with coverage of today's Rams-Seahawks game. (Hey, what are all those numbers doing on the pitch?).
So, I'm thumbing through the game program and on pages 82 and 83 I come across a feature called "Caught on Camera." And what is there but the happy Sounders holding the U.S. Open Cup aloft at RFK Stadium. The text reads: "Congratulations Sounders FC for winning the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup."
The Sounders make one other appearance in the program: An ad for The Pro Shops at Qwest Field and Pacific Place features Matt Hasselbeck in his blue Seahawks jersey and Freddie Ljungberg in his rave green Sounders jersey.
Update: And now that the game has started I look down at the Seahawks sidesline and looking on are general manager Adrian Hanauer and midfielder Freddie Ljungberg.
