Big weekend (Saturday links)

As a heads up, I won’t be able to make it out to Sounders practice today before they head down to Portland. I’ll be rooting my mom, who’ll be running in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Seattle Marathon this morning.

Here are some links:

— Bad news for the Timbers heading into Sunday’s game. Defender Hayner Mosquera has been suspended three games for punching L.A.’s Jack McBean.

— Around the area, the Sounders Women play the Santa Clarita Blue Heat on Sunday and their Olympic stars are expected to play. The Sounders FC U-23s played a wild one against the Timbers U-23 and emerged 4-3 victors. The Pumas also wrap up a big weekend Sunday.

— Here’s a good story on what Osvaldo Alonso is facing to become eligible for the U.S. men’s national team.

— Around the league, Stoke City is reportedly after Houston’s Geoff Cameron, the Whitecaps waived defender Michael Boxall (and rumors are Vancouver is closing in on Carlos Bocanegra) and D.C. United loaned Ethan White out to the Richmond Kickers, again.

— Here’s the latest Arlo White podcast with the guys at KJR radio.

— And in honor of the Spain-France quarterfinal in Euro 2012, happy 40th birthday to Zinedine Zidane.
