Soggy Sounders conclude wet practice

The Sounders had a longer-than-usual practice on a gusty rainy day at Starfire this morning.

But that might reflect some of the conditions they'll play in Sunday, when the Houston weather forecast calls for warmer temperatures -- mid-70s -- but with a chance of thunderstorms.

Defender Tyrone Marshall sat out most of the work again today.

Meanwhile, his teammates seemed to spend extra time on set pieces and penalty kicks.
