Sounders Insider

One dark cloud rolls into Sounders' sunny stretch

It's been a pretty nice couple of games for Sounders fans, eh? On Saturday they won some hardware -- Cascadia Cup in Vancouver -- and last night they stayed alive for some pretty prestigious hardware in CONCACAF Champions League.

· Real Salt Lake loses to Chicago (tonight) AND ties LA Galaxy ANDo Seattle fails to defeat New England
