Saludos desde soggy Qwest

Hello from Qwest. Looks like the rain has stopped for the moment, so we’ll see if it holds off. Temperature is a CHILLY 39 degrees. The Emerald City Supporters are already in their seats and the team is warming up. Looks like everyone else is waiting until the last minute to take their seats.

Danny O’Neil, my crime partner from the Seahawks beat, has arrived and will be down there in the Brougham End with the ECS. He marched over with the crazies.

The press box is far less crowded then last week.

I believe there was a question asked from a reader about seats for the major friendlies. I’m pretty certain the upper bowl of Qwest will be opened for seating for the Chelsea game, but not sure about the MLS Cup.

Salt Lake players took the field to boos.

STARTING LINEUPS:

Sounders FC: Same as last week, Zakuani starts over Nyassi at midfield, as Nyassi was dealing with a hamstring problem this past week.

For RSL: GK Nick Rimando, D Chris Wingert, D Nat Borchers, D Jamison Olave, D Tony Beltran, M Clint Mathis, M Kyle Beckerman, M Javier Morales, M Will Johnson, F Robbie Findley, F Yura Movsisyan.
