Sounders Gameday

It's Sounders FC gameday today! And Seattle is going to be packed.

Sounders start at 12 pm, Mariners start in the neighboring stadium at 1 pm, Seafair is going on, construction too. It's going to be a busy area.

I'm actually going to the game too! So the Northern Rangers will be represented. But I'm going to ride the new light-rail into the game. What's the light-rail you're asking? Well, I'll post more about this later so tune back.

As for the Sounders, they currently sit in 2nd place in the West with 28 points, (Houston is in first with 32).

The FC will be taking on the Chicago Fire today who are in first place in the East, also with 28 points.

This is a cruical game for the Sounders, as they may have 28 points, but by no means can feel comfortable as both Los Angeles and Chivas USA have 27 points and Colorado has 24.

So a win today over the Fire would be HUGE!!!

Here's the press release about the game and traffic from soundersfc.com:

Mariners first pitch at Safeco Field is 1 p.m. PT.

Seattle Sounders FC fans are encouraged to arrive early at Qwest Field for Saturday’s match vs. the Chicago Fire. The Qwest Field gates open at 10:30 a.m. The match starts at noon.

Fans can expect additional traffic and congestion due to the Mariners game, Seafair activities and road construction.

Fans are encouraged to avoid South Royal Brougham Way unless they park in the Qwest Event Center Garage. Fans parking in the garage will have access by one lane only via South Royal Brougham Way and Fourth Avenue South.
