Less than two months after eviscerating Chivas USA, HBO's "Real Sports" once again is focusing on an MLS team. This time it's the Seattle Sounders in the spotlight, and for a much more positive reason than alleged racial discrimination.
HBO's Jon Frankel traveled to Seattle to report on the Sounders' novel ownership strategy and the team's famed Emerald City Supporters. The program will air tonight (Tuesday, Sept. 17) at 10 p.m. ET/PT. A preview of the feature is below:
