"The game is going to have a different feel to it. I'm so hyped for the game and everybody else will be really pumped for the game."
-- Portland Timbers forward Bright Dike on his team's game on Sunday at Seattle, where a crowd of more than 67,000 is expected at CenturyLink Field for the clash of Northwest rivals. If the turnout meets expectations, it will rank as the second-highest single-game attendance for a regular-season game in league history, trailing the attendance of 69,255 for the Los Angeles Galaxy's inaugural MLS game at the Rose Bowl on April 13, 1996.
