MLS Super Tuesday: Fire vs. Sounders

"The Fire's late-season drive to make the MLS playoffs is still going strong, but it'll be put briefly on hold," Len Ziehm writes for the Sun-Times. "The Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup final is Tuesday night against the host Seattle Sounders, and plenty of history will be on the line.

"The summerlong Open Cup has been played annually since 1914 and the Fire could become the third team to be a five-time champion, joining the Bethlehem (Pa.) Steel and Maccabi Los Angeles. If Seattle wins, they would be only the second team to win three consecutive titles, along with the New York Greek-Americans."

Let's take a look.


"The U.S. Open Cup Championship will prove to be a historic day in MLS as the Seattle Sounders look to earn their third-straight trophy and the Chicago Fire look to earn their fifth title in club history."


"Chicago defender Cory Gibbs talks with Jackie Pickering ahead of Tuesday's Open Cup Final."


"Jackie Pickering caught up with Chicago forward Dominic Oduro ahead of the U.S. Open Cup Final."
