A Tale of Two Clasicos: From Madrid to Seattle
It seemed like a good idea -- to compare and contrast Sunday's big games. Two clasicos really: From Spain, Real Madrid-Barcelona, and right here the Seattle Sounders-Los Angeles Galaxy. Maybe it's stretching things a bit to dub the MLS game a clasico, if only because clasicos surely need a history. The American rivalry dates back only to 2009, a feeble six years compared to the Spanish version, which had its beginning 1902, since when 260 games have been played.

"I honestly think the Supporters Shield is more important than an MLS Cup championship. In terms of the best team, this is the best team over a full season."

-- Seattle defender DeAndre Yedlin after a 2-0 win over the Los Angeles Galaxy clinched the regular-season championship for the Sounders. (Seattle Times)
