    how sad is it that 5 of the top ten games were with NO USA team involved?

    Only somewhat sad. Aren't those Mexico games run by SUM (owned by MLS)? SUM has been huge for providing MLS with financial stability and an additional income stream. Also, if/when the U.S. is given the 2018 or 2022 World Cup we'll have Mexican-American inflated attendance numbers to thank for 1) proving that soccer is such a draw in the U.S., and 2) exercising new stadium facilities with World-Cup-sized audiences. Although one might consider it disappointing that U.S. fans don't come out in such numbers for their national team, in every other respect these games are very good for soccer in America.

    No, its not sad at all! US is making major progress and we need to feed it and keep it going.
    Sad, is the way the US team performed in the Brazil match on Tuesday. There is no acceptable explanation for a lack of effort, and thats all it was. Those kind of efforts (if it continues) by our guys will derail the progress

    How cool is that, that Seattle, with it's great crowds, is no longer even in the top 10? These top 10 matches have come from 7 different locations. I take that as progress.

    Bring the US soccer team to Seattle that is a for sure sell out. To bad Qwest can only hold 67,000 for soccer. Qwest is just right for the sounders. Best fans in the MLS.

    GO SOUNDERS!
