Who: Seattle Sounders @ Colorado Rapids Where: Dick's Sporting Goods Park, Commerce City, CO When: 6:00PM, Saturday, 7/28 Watch: KONG 6/16, THIS TV Listen: 97.3 KIRO FM, La Gran D 99.3 FM So... This game is 10 days away and will be held at high elevation. I think we all know what this means. The Sounders will come out flatter than a drive through the midwest. Even more exciting is that this game occurs the day after MLS's international transfer window, so if we're going to get anyone from outside MLS, then they will be in camp pounding away at the ball. The good news is that we're taking on the Rapids who are... Shall we say... not doing very well. Not that the Sounders are doing amazing quite yet, but the Rapids are winless streak busters right now and after a brief visit into the Western Conference playoff picture, are free falling and are currently 5 points out of 5th pace and falling further and further behind the streaking Galaxy. The big question for the Sounders, other than transfer rumors, of course, is what the #@!$%$!@#$ is going on with Gspurning? After getting our hopes raised before the Red Bulls game that he was good to go and that there was a high probability of him not only being in the 18, but starting and what happens on game day? Meredith in goal and Ford on the bench.. So hope shifted to the Chelsea game and when the game starts, there's Meredith picking balls out of the back of the net and Ford picking splinters out of his butt. *sigh* So.. 10 days... This is going to be fun. Time to fire up the circular firing squad and start taking potshots at each other.
