The Sounders take practice to CenturyLink Field on Wednesday and an old friend is expected to be in attendance: former broadcaster Arlo White. He’ll be on the call for the NBC Sports Network, which is carrying Friday night’s game against the Houston Dynamo.
We’ll hosting a live chat with White at 1 p.m. this afternoon so be sure to join us for that.
