Okay, this isn’t entirely fair seeing as there are basically no other games. But, but, but, we have thoughts about why you should drop everything else you’re doing this weekend and watch the Sounders host Chivas. Would you like to hear them?

  • The triumphant return of Steve Zakuani to the starting lineup at CenturyLink Field. (Probably.)
  • Along those lines, the Seattle crowd. More of them, all the time.
  • It’s possible this is the week embattled Dan Kennedy loses it. (And who could blame him?)

  • What else are you going to watch? The US? The EPL? Lame.
