US Open Cup: Seattle Sounders vs. San Jose Earthquakes at Starfire

Your Seattle Sounders face the physical (to put it nicely) San Jose Earthquakes in the constricting confines of Starfire Sports complex tonight at 7:30pm. Mrs. Ravinggreen and I had a blast at our last game there and snatch up the chance to attend this match.

The Sounders don’t lose US Open Cup games at Starfire (15-0 with a 42-8 goal differential). However the Earthquakes prefer smaller pitches (such as their home pitch at Buck Shaw Stadium) as the tight space allows them to play their preferred smash-mouth style of soccer. The last Seattle-San Jose game featured a B team from the Earthquakes, but they should field a much more competitive side tonight.

Bold Prediction: The voracious home fans are too much for the floppoons from the South Bay. Sounders depth proves the difference as Seattle prevails 3-1.
