Best bet on the Tube

On a day normally reserved for American football, football of the other sort will take a national stage today ( 12:30 p.m. on NBC) with a rivalry match between the Seattle Sounders and the host Portland Timbers. The game gives a wide audience a taste of soccer in the Pacific Northwest. Many who happen across the broadcast may not be aware of the game’s implications to the teams involved. The outcome could determine the winner of the Cascadia Cup, the annual head-to-head competition between the Sounders, the Timbers and the Vancouver Whitecaps. It could also send Seattle to the MLS playoffs. – AP
