Seattle

The Sounders didn't exploit the hole between LA's Juninho and their centerbacks. A bit more work in that space could have turned that draw into a win.

MLS

What happened on D.C. United's "Swipe Right Night?" Geekwire knows.

As the Washington Post reported, the event included the "Tinder District," a pre-game party zone that included a band, drinking games like beer pong and an open bar.

Atlanta's soccer history starts in 1912 with Atlanta Soccer Football club. Yes, they used both soccer and football.

Sacramento Republic will be the biggest revenue generator in the history of Sacramento, just read these studies*
*studies commissioned by people that will be able to take advantage of funding and tax write-offs for stadiums.

Orlando City SC didn't get Chicarito. Now their sights are set higher - much higher. They want Zlatan.

DraftKings and FanDuel are now tied together in a scandal where an employee at one used his insider knowledge to exploit the other's system. DraftKings recently became the official daily fantasy partner of MLS.

Fox Sports Latin America will carry MLS games throughout their area, except Brazil (covered by a competitor). This means more MLS in places like Colombia, Jamaica, Mexico, Costa Rica, etc.

NWSL

Orlando City may be the Pride. That's a nifty name for the women's affiliate of OCSC. They often go by the Lions. They are targeting former Sounders Women players Morgan and Leroux, also Ashlyn Harris.

US National Teams

The CONCACAF Cup is a sell-out. A minimum of 30% of the fans will be supporting the United States. You should come to our watch party. We invited Giovani Dos Santos. He's not going be at the Cup. He's not going to be with us either.

Former Sounder at Heart author Liviu Bird has a tactical preview of the most important non-World Cup match in US-Mexico history.

Tim Howard has more money than Nick Rimando, and other lessons in "how soccer players travel."

World Soccer

Klopp may be taking overat Liverpool. It is expected that a thousand people will show up at the next Sounders game to celebrate Liverpool's inclusion of a German.
