TV or not TV

This weekend on TV: It's a big weekend for soccer, with RSL-Seattle at the top of the list

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.
