Checking in from Dick’s Sporting Goods Park — pregame

Here’s my view from the open-air pressbox here in Commerce City, Colorado. I got a bit winded walking up the stairs to get here, blame the altitude. It’s warm and very windy out.

Got to mingle with some traveling Sounders fans in the parking lot. The Rapids are expecting a sell-out crowd, as I believe some tickets were given out at a big youth soccer tournament going on here this weekend.

What do you expect from this one?

Also, here’s Colorado’s “Gallery of Honor.” You might recognize that No. 19 jersey of Seattle’s current technical director Chris Henderson.
