Countdown to 7:25 "Special presentation"

Special presentation: ... now scheduled for 7:25.

Sounders starters: G Hahnemann; D Yedlin, Ianni, Traore, Gonzalez; M Rosales, Alonso, Evans, Neagle; F Martins, Johnson. Reserves: Weber, Burch, Carrasco, Hurtado, Rose, Scott, Zavaleta.

Dallas starters: Fernandez, Benitez, Hedges, John, Loyd, Castillo, Jacobson, Watson, Jackson, Ferreira(C), Perez.

Pregame: The sun is shining at CenturyLink Field, and I really believe there's an extra buzz outside the stadium from what projects as a memorable evening for Seattle Sounders FC.

What we know is that the Sounders will face FC Dallas at 7:30 p.m.

What we also know is that there will be a "special presentation" in the stadium at 7:15.

And what we believe is that Clint Dempsey will be introduced then as the newest Sounders designated player.

We'll keep this blog post open through that presentation. We'll also be tweeting @donruiztnt.

I'll be back with lineups as they become available.
