Remember the MLS Cup Playoffs? They started up again tonight. The late game, on FS1/FDN includes the Seattle Sounders, which is cool. At one point the Sounders weren’t supposed to be in the playoffs. Instead they went on this story-book run and are in the Western Conference Finals against the Colorado Rapids. Both teams claim to be the underdog, which is fine. One of them is going to win, and the other is going to lose. Each will have an interesting story in 2016, but frankly the better story is the one in Rave Green, Sounder Blue and Cascade Shale. We’re biased. We are Sounder at Heart. It’s what we’re here for.
Chris Penso is the center referee. Clint Dempsey is still out due to a heart issue. Andreas Ivanschitz, Alvaro Fernandez, Jordan Morris and Oalex Anderson are listed as questionable. Colorado Rapids will be without Tim Howard and Dillon Serna. The list of players in danger of suspension due to yellow card accumulation is long - Osvaldo Alonso, Cristian Roldan, Stefan Frei, Dominique Badji, Jared Watts, Jermaine Jones, Shkelzen Gashi, and Sam Cronin.
