No Sounders FC action today

Practice resumes tomorrow. We know that Sigi Schmid is on his way to Washington D.C. to meet President Obama at the White House with the Columbus Crew.
LOTS of soccer these days. DId anyone catch the U.S. Gold Cup match vs. Haiti? I bet the Dynamo wished they had Stuart Holden back for the Seattle game after his late goal in that U.S. match.
My favorite CONCACAF team, Mexico, is playing today at 4 on UNIVISION (Comcast Ch. 29) in Glendale, Ariz. El Tri has its last group match vs Guadeloupe, which looks like a really good team and it’s too bad those guys can’t compete in World Cup qualifying. But Mexico’s coach, Javier Aguirre, deserves to be suspended after the kick to the private area he delivered to the Panama player.
The SuperClasico between L.A. Galaxy and Chivas USA last night was kind of boring. Chivas just isn’t bringing it like they did earlier in the season and the Galaxy are playing a lot better. With Beckham coming back, assuming he can work out his drama with Landon Donovan, L.A. is going to be that much better down the stretch.
