Seeing ourselves as Salt Lake sees us…

I’ve finally gotten a chance to take a deeper look at the Salt Lake papers today, and there’s no shortage of Sounders items in there.

The main photo on the Desert News shows a picture from the all-stars/media gathering yesterday at Rio Tinto Stadium. Four interview clusters are clearly visitble: Dominic Kinnear, Jhon Kennedy Hurtado, Fredy Montero and Kasey Keller. (Both traveling sportswriters covering the Sounders are visible too.)

Inside the section, the News gives its MLS rankings, and the Sounders have moved to the top. The text says: “Six-game unbeating streak vaults Sounders to the No. 1 rankings.” (Which isn’t really gramatical, but…)

An inside story has a story on the MLS and Everton goalkeepers Kasey Keller and Tim Howard, with pictures of each.

The Salt Lake Tribune has a good inside spread on the game, including a list of both rosters with a quick one-sentence summary for each player. Here’s what they had to say about the Sounders:


Latest global star to join league has been key for Sounders.


Young star for Sounders among the league’s top scorers.


Longtime national star, arguably best American keeper ever.


One of four Sounders on team has been rock in central defense.
