SEATTLE - A cold night, two exhausted teams, overtime inconclusive and a national championship on the line. That was the scenario at Qwest Field on Sunday night, where a wind-chilled crowd of 46,011 saw Real Salt Lake win Major League Soccer's 2009 title. When Robbie Russell's penalty kick hit the back of the net to give the Utah side its first MLS title in only its fifth season, Galaxy heads dropped. The players had given everything, only to fall in a shootout, 5-4, after a 1-1 tie. David Beckham and Landon Donovan tried to lift the spirits, shaking their teammates' hands before hugging each other.

D.C. United and RFK Stadium officials put on a recent media event to show off the logo for the second MLS Cup, set for RFK on Oct. 26.They touted the stadium as the country's best for soccer. Some may differ, but to be sure, a lot of first-rate soccer has been played there over the years, RFK has great view lines, and United is now its only tenant. The officials also conducted a love-in about how MLS Cup week will be great for Washington tourism.But they didn't mention what MLS Cup II will be up against that same fall Sunday afternoon -- the first Maryland pro football championship, with the Raljon Redskins playing host to the Ravens.

More than 40,000 tickets have been sold for the second MLS Cup game at RFK Stadium in Washington at 3: 30 p.m. on Oct. 26. If you haven't seen an MLS game, this would be a great way to start.With D.C. United trying for its second consecutive Cup, league officials expect RFK to be a 56,000-plus sellout by as early as Monday.United is 25-11 overall -- league play plus playoffs. If you like attacking, one-touch soccer, put that Washington-thing aside; this team's worth the ticket. United's surprise opponent from the MLS West, the Colorado Rapids, is easily the league's most-improved team.

CARSON, Calif. - Bob Gansler has been around long enough to know that it's all just a game. Win or lose, life goes on. So it was in classic Gansler style that the longtime coach of the Kansas City Wizards gently reproved the media for doubting his team's ability to reach today's Major League Soccer championship game at the Home Depot Center. "We're here," he began. "We're pleased to be here. We're not surprised to be here. Some of you might be surprised that we're here, but we're not. "We're really not that bright, and we don't do a lot of reading.

WASHINGTON - It will be the best offense against the best defense in today's Major League Soccer championship game. The Chicago Fire, the team with the most productive offense, also has one of the premier money players in the world in Hristo Stoitchkov, and a number of coaches and general managers think his presence gives Chicago the edge over the Kansas City Wizards. Stoitchkov's leadership since he came to the United States at the beginning of the season has been more evident in the playoffs.

WASHINGTON -- Literally speaking, it rained for Major League Soccer's championship game again yesterday -- unrelenting, soaking, chilling stuff with temperatures in the mid-40s. But figuratively, it didn't rain on either D.C. United's or the MLS's "parade."Heavily favored United won its second-straight MLS Cup, defeating the cellar-to-not-quite-stellar Colorado Rapids, 2-1, before 57,431 noisy, drenched fans. The crowd was 581 shy, likely because of the poor weather, of setting a record for any event at RFK Stadium.
