If you've ever considering going to a Seattle Sounders Reserve League game, you may want to do it on Sunday. Not only will they be playing the Vancouver Whitecaps, which is always fun, you'll get a chance to see the likes of Steve Zakuani and Mario Martinez.

We are just a couple of hours before kickoff in a very big Eastern Conference game. With a win, the Fire would jump up to 44 points along with the Red Bulls. The game figures to be a grind-it-out battle, but I am confident when the whistle blows the Fire will be leaving RFK with all 3 points. We all remember the two goal, stoppage time stunner that the Men in Red pulled off late last fall at RFK.
