Let's be honest, this week was a bit of a letdown. Almost literally as soon as he arrived, Obafemi Martins was gone. Eddie Johnson and Mario Martinez were away as well. Those three absences were especially felt in Saturday's loss to the San Jose Earthquakes.
That left the Sounders with an 0-2-1 record, which ties them for the worst start in franchise history. Time to freak out? Not nearly. The reality is that the Sounders were missing some significant talent and, really, it's early anyway.
To take our mind off the result, we had Stars and Stripes FC's Ryan Rosenblatt (@RyanRosenblatt) on the show to discuss Friday's United States World Cup qualifier. You may have heard that tere was some snow on the ground. Ryan was there and he tells us all about it. We also get his sense of how USMNT supporters are welcoming the idea of a match finally being played in Seattle.
Of course, no show would be complete without taking your questions. We answer many of those, as well. If you'd like to get your questions answered, follow us on Twitter (@NosAudietis) or send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
A small programming note: We're working on designing a shirt. If you're looking for ways to help support what we do, please buy one. We'll have more details soon.
