Sounders v Timbers - Gamethread

With 67,000 partisans in attendance ESPN2 will feature the 2nd largest crowd in soccer. The 7 PM Pacific game is nationally featured, but more importantly is a celebration of Cascadia soccer as America's grandest soccer rivalry is renewed.

Grand things happen in matches between Portland and Seattle.

Cascadiapocolypse is almost over, just the small matter of a league match in front of 67,000 people in the stadium on national television (ESPN2) and national radio (Sirius XM FC) and the week of three matches among bitter rivals will be over. Seattle Sounders FC lost in their road match, won their Open Cup match and can nearly make the remaining season useless for the Portland Timbers if Sigi earns another win on Sunday night.

It will be hot. There may be thunder and lightning and rain. The only knowns heading into the game are these - we will be heard and the hydra is a many-headed beast.
