Game Day in Seattle

Greetings from a cold and wet Seattle. Rain and temperatures in the low 40s are expected for tonight’s 8:30 p.m. (MDT) kickoff, which should make the Qwest Field turf even quicker.

Tonight’s game is officially a sell-out, with Seattle officials having capped stadium capacity at 27,700. The team increased the capacity to 32,523 for last week’s game against New York, but won’t do so again this week.

Here’s what the local papers in Seattle are saying:
