Schedule released, and what it means

You can finally start planning your trips down to Tukwila. The USL Sounders schedule for 2008 has just been released (View it here). Of note is the one game at Qwest Field, May 10 against Portland, and the fact that the Sounders end their season with 7 straight home games. That's just silly.

We can get two things from this news. One, the MLS team will likely announce its name and stuff shortly before the season begins, so the window to look for that is end of March to the beginning of April. And secondly, there is a nice little window in mid-June where the Sounders are at home, with no games for almost 2 weeks. Look for a high-profile friendly in that timeframe, quite possibly Wednesday, June 11. Toronto FC or a Mexican team could be opponents...
