The lineup should be interesting. I suspect we’ll see a lot of guys who play in reserve games, i.e. Evan Brown, Kevin Forrest, Roger Levesque, Sanna Nyassi, Tyson Wahl and Patrick Ianni.
There is bound to be a couple of starters in there as well.
Details on how you can hear the game:
The Open Cup play-in between the Sounders FC and Colorado Rapids will be carried live via Internet audiocast at SoundersFC.com. Thom Beuning will call the action with analysis from Peter Fewing.
From MLS Web site, we have another story about how Sounders FC fans are dominating the fan voting for All-Stars. I wonder…if nine Seattle guys make it to the All-Star Game, does that mean that the Seattle Times will definitely send me to Utah to cover it? Hope so.
Sounders FC FWD Fredy Montero is up for his third MLS Goal of the Week award of the season. You can see the replay and vote for it here.
You can also choose a Kasey Keller save from Saturday as MLS Save of the Week.
And finally, a story from the MLS site about the Columbus Crew, Saturday’s opponent, playing two regular-season games this week. Excerpt from it here:
The matchup of Schmid against his replacement, Robert Warzycha, is big enough but the Crew know the match is crucial for another reason: national team duties will strip the team of starters Moreno (Venezuela) and defender Frankie Hejduk (U.S.) and reserve midfielder Duncan Oughton (New Zealand) for the June 6 game at Kansas City and possibly beyond.
