Seattle Sounders at New York Red Bulls - Gamethread

New, 575 comments

The weather expects to be clear and dry in Harrison, New Jersey with temps in the upper 40s as East Coast DP (aka Red Bulls) open their season at home, and hopefully to a near sell-out crowd. Seattle still needs to figure out their wave of injuries and defection of Nkufo. This likely means they play a more technical than speed game with the fast players available being even more limited than normal. We may get a little bonus today with Mauro Rosales (#TheTrialist) seeing some time.

Today's game is on KONG 6/16/106 for TV, and 97.3 FM for radio.
