Sounders v Toronto FC - Beware the Ides of Turf

The 1:30 PM match may not see the Reds' biggest stars as Ryan Nelsen is scared of artificial surfaces. But there is a potential for Defoe, Bradley, Cesar, DeRo, Dempsey, Martins, Alonso, and Evans. That's a lot of players that should be known around North America. The match is on NBC Sports, TSN and RDS2 in the USA and Canada. Seattle Sounders FC will also be carrying it on local broadcast partners Q13, THIS-TV, KIRO Radio and ESPN Deportes Radio. Seattle enters the match with a 1-0-0 +1 record while Toronto FC had a bye in week one.
