The ticket update: Only a few seats remainedas of noon today, so the Timbers opened up 400 standing-room only tickets for $15 each. C’mon people, it’s not like you sit down at matches anyway!
So this one is going to be a pretty packed house. It’s a beautiful day in the Portland area, I’m set to catch my train to the stadium later this afternoon and I’m really glad to see all of the excitement being generated for the game. I mentioned on my segment with Softy a little while ago that is great for the region, great for the future of the rivalry.
Saw a Seattle lineup posted on the Sounders FC web site…I think it will be this: Keller
Riley, Ianni, Hurtado, Wahl
Nyassi, King, Vagenas, Sturgis
Levesque, Le Toux.
Two shoutouts before I sign this one off…to the late Alexis Arguello, who died early this morning. I just saw the former boxing champ five days ago in Puerto Rico and now he is gone.
And to the Kitsap Pumas of the PDL, whose 10-0-2 mark is good for 32 points, the highest total in all of the 68-team PDL. Not bad for an expansion team.
