Saturday's Major League Soccer game between Real Salt Lake and Seattle Sounders FC is NOT in the evening. It's a 12:30 p.m. game.
It's also not on local TV because (gasp!) it's on a national outlet - the NBC Sports Network. That's Channel 695 on Comcast; Channel 220 on DirecTV; and Channel 159 on Dish.
And, by the way, this is a Really Big Game. The winner will be in first place in the Western Conference. If Seattle wins, it will maintain its lead in the overall standings; if RSL wins, it will be at least tied for first in the overall standings.
By the way, this is a big weekend for soccer. The English Premiere League opens play for the 2014-15 season, and NBC Sports will either telecast or stream every game.
