WHO: San Francisco
WHAT: CONCACAF Champions League Preliminary Round
WHEN: Wednesday, 7:00 PM
WHERE: The Locks
Straight forward, there is only one thing that has to happen in order for the Sounders to come away from the 2nd leg of the CCL prelim's. And that's everyone make it out tomorrow night for a mid-week entertainment extravaganza at the Locks.
First, the Locks = the Clink + the Docks. (nudge nudge get it? the Key, the Safe, and the Locks?)
Second, tickets are dirt cheap and they are no where close to selling out. That means it'll be like the goold ol' days, when $15 bucks gets you up close to the action on the field. It'll be an intimate Sounders atmosphere, and the evening weather will be perfect. What more could you ask for?
Third, it's pretty much a guaranteed win. The Sounders head into this home leg down 0-1, so they pretty much need to win by at least two goals. With the added pressure of a disappointing loss in Houston last weekend, this game is pretty much a lock. In fact, I'm calling it as a blowout. Perhaps it's the game where the Sounders regain their focus and get back into the groove.
I'm pretty confident that tomorrow night the team will be able to grind out the result. It might be a bit nerve-wracking, but there's no indication that Sigi and the boys aren't up for it.
