Sounders open upper deck at CenturyLink

I have arrived at what I guess is CenturyLink Field, although all the signage I've seen so far still says "Qwest." What is new instead is the absence of tarp from most of both upper decks. All but the corner sections are open all the way to the top ... although the highest-seated fans I see so far are stilling about 60 percent of the way up.

The basics: New York at Sounders, 7 p.m., ESPN2 and the usual radio outlets.
