It really did feel like the Seattle Sounders' year. Alas, it was not to be. Instead of rooting on our boys as they try to qualify for their first ever MLS Cup, the Sounders will be watching along with us as Sporting KC and the Houston Dynamo face off in the East and the LA Galaxy and Real Salt Lake do battle out West.
If the Galaxy win the Cup, the Sounders should, at least theoretically, earn an automatic spot in the CONCACAF Champions League group stage. Aside from that, though, it seems most of us around here will be rooting for Sporting KC. Enjoy.
