No Sounders FC practice today

With an extra day in between games, Seattle gets today off and resumes work tomorrow at Qwest Field for practice.

Just want to say that the Manny Ramirez 50-game suspension is really tough to take as a lifelong Dodgers fan. Let’s all hope that this problem that is ruining baseball for a lot of people and hurting the sport’s image in a big way does not permeate Major League Soccer. Much as I love “la pelota,” this makes me appreciate the sport I cover much more because it does not have a performance-enhancing drug epidemic.

So last night’s LA Galaxy-Real Salt Lake seemed like quite a barnburner. Read about what happened at the end to give the Galaxy a 2-2 draw on the road.

Column in Salt Lake Tribune.

So RSL’s tie moves them to 3-3-1 while the Galaxy drew for the fifth time this season and are 1-1-5. That makes this Sunday a big game for the Galaxy — a win over Seattle gives them 11 points and puts them only two behind Sounders FC, which is currently in second place in the West. Meanwhile, RSL can help Sounders FC with a win at Chivas USA if Seattle can take care of business at home.
