As I write this, it is 5:25 p.m. in Kansas City, and the temperature is 102.
It only seems hotter than that.
The Sounders and SKC dealt with this sizzling day by training in the morning.
However, there’s nothing they can do about kickoff of their U.S. Open Cup final, which is 8 p.m. local time (6 Pacific). As of now, the forecast for around then calls for temperatures in the low 90s and a chance of thunderstorms.
