I'm really sorry everyone. This post should have been up days ago. One would think that the summer would make things easier, but life has been beating me with its boomstick while writer's block holds me down by the jugular. There's still plenty of action to pay attention to, and as I write this Sporting KC looks poised to take the points lead from our Sounders as they have a 1-0 lead on the Philadelphia Union. Also of interest this weekend will be the LA Galaxy in Portland and Salt Lake in Colorado on Saturday, and DC United expected to take Houston out behind that Volkswagon shed in RFK to join Sporting at the top of the overall table. If the Sounders want to keep a mental edge, beating the Earthquakes will be big.
There's still eight more games this weekend, so I hope you all can find it in your heart to forgive me.
