The local heroes will take their show on the road with the aim of wowing crowds throughout the region and spreading word of their exploits throughout the land.

The Seattle Sounders will travel 175 miles to the south to face local team the Portland Timbers in a soccer match this Sunday at 2:00 PM. The match will take place at a field in central Portland, sponsored by a local glass-making concern. Crowds will surely gasp in awe at the high-class, professional, barnstorming antics of the region's premier soccer stars.

The Sounders' cavalcade of stars will likely include such household names as Fredy Montero, Osvaldo Alonso, Mauro Rosales, and Jeff Parke, while the local team the Portland Timbers will feature moderately well-known star of yesteryear Kris Boyd. Fans from environs as far reaching as Everett and Lake Oswego will travel to take in the festivities, and a special buzz is in the air locally as the mighty three-time US Open Cup winning champions storm the town.

Food will be available from fine local merchants serving from horseless carriages in near proximity of the arena, and the parade of the Emerald City Supporters, the famous fans and vocal band that travels in support of the mighty visitors, will surely captivate the attention of all those in attendance. Will the brave local lads manage to a respectable showing against the famous club from the big city to the north? Only time will tell, but surely the odds are against them.
