MOST COMMENTED

[MLS ATTENDANCE] Cold weather was a factor as Week 2's attendance average was nearly 4,000 lower than the opening week's 21,046 average, but another huge crowd cheered on the Sounders, Real Salt Lake set a record, and Philadelphia had a sellout for its opener.

* In front of a
Rio Tinto Stadiumrecord crowd of 20,507,Real Salt Lake routed the Los Angeles Galaxy, 4-1.

* Second-year club Philadelphia had a sellout (
18,591) for its home opener, a 1-0 win over Vancouver.

* Attendance leader Seattle again broke the 36,000 mark in its second home game of the season but remains winless after mustering only a 1-1 tie with Houston.

* Toronto FC's announced attendance of 20,086 in
sub-zero temperatures (for a 2-0 win over Portland) marked thefirst time in the club's 5-year history that it failed to sell out a home opener.

* A stiff breeze and 32-degree temperature kept Chicago's home opener crowd down to 12,157 as the Fire beat Kansas City, 3-2.

* Also disappointing
-- 10,306 for the Columbus Crew's home opener, a scoreless tie with the New York Red Bulls.
