Head to head, the Safe and the Clink, Friday night, downtown Seattle:
The Mariners (in the middle of a playoff race for the first time in over a decade) drew 29,090 fans. The Sounders (first place, U.S. Open and MLS cups within reach) drew 38,976 fans. Yet the Sounders merit a one-inch blip at the bottom of the front page of the Sports section, referring to an inside-the-section article.
What does it take to get a little more Sounders support?
