Lightning causes pre-match delay; Live Chat starts at 5:45 p.m.

We received word of an “urgent weather announcement” at Livestrong Sporting Park a few minutes ago. Lightning and heavy rains have officials concerned here. Not word yet on when we’ll resume and what that will mean for the start of the U.S. Open Cup final between the Sounders FC and Sporting KC. Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m.

I’ll start the live chat at 5:45 p.m. nonetheless.

Here are the Sounders’ 11 starters:

GK Michael Gspurning

DEF Leonardo Gonzalez

DEF Patrick Ianni

DEF Jhon Kennedy Hurtado

MID Zach Scott

MID Alex Caskey

MID Andy Rose

MID Osvaldo Alonso

MID Mauro Rosales

FWD Eddie Johnson

FWD Fredy Montero

For brevity sake, to get the post up quickly, I’ll save the analysis of the lineup for the live chat. Obviously, there are things about that lineup to discuss.
