Sounders vs LA Galaxy live TV: Streaming, schedule and how to watch

New, 648 comments

ESPN has this nationally televised match. Coverage begins at 1 PM.

These are the teams that get rules invented for them. From Designated Players, to Homegrown Players, to multiple DPs, to loaning DPs to other teams, to owning USL teams the rules change when the LA Galaxy or Seattle Sounders need them to change.

ESPN is showing these two teams because they have the largest TV draw in American soccer. In a month this meeting would be so much more potent. Right now, it is almost certain to feed the narrative that the Galaxy are the best in the land. I hate that narrative. I hate the Galaxy. The only way to stop that storyline is to win. Please do so.

Tune in at 1 PM today on ESPN.
