Gamethread: Seattle Sounders Vs. Chivas USA, 9/8/12


Fantastic weather is expected in the town many refer to as "Rain City." Seattle's forecast calls for a clear, sunny day with temperatures in the low 80's. Perfect soccer weather.

With the Space Needle, Experience Music, and Pike Place market, Seattle has a wealth of activities making it a great tourist destination. For instance NPR's Ira Glass is at Seattle's famed Benaroya Hall. Centurylink Field itself offers some amenities. The stadium managed to house both an NFL team and an MLS side, arguably the first stadium to do so successfully. While most MLS sides look to be playing in cavernous, gigantic stadiums, the Sounders fill the seats. Once there fans can enjoy garlic fries, authentic Texas barbeque but apparently no Starbucks.

It's been a hard go of things for Chivas USA. Mired in a five game winless streak and eleven points* outside of the playoff picture, Robin Fraser's group is quickly running out of time to turn it around. That said, a win in Seattle could be just the tonic this team needs.
