The Seattle Sounders are busy assembling 63,000 or so close friends of Kasey Keller for a little sending off party, but there are games of significant consequence elsewhere in the league tonight. The match between the Portland Timbers and Houston Dynamo (on ROOT sports) has huge implications for the bottom of the playoff race, as these are the two teams on the edge of the top 10. And the Rocky Mountain Cup match between Real Salt Lake and the Colorado Rapids (on ESPN2) could determine who plays the Sounders in the playoffs. A loss by RSL would open the door a little wider for FC Dallas to earn their way back into the top three in the West.
I'll be enjoying a Flying Squirrel pizza and a Woodchuck Fall Cider while I try to watch both games at once.
