Sun rising on Seattle's MLS hopes...

I talked about this a bit yesterday, but the Seattle-MLS link is looking stronger and stronger everyday.

An AP story ran today -- one you can read at The Seattle Times or ESPN -- further hyping a potential move.

And who knows, maybe a 5-0 thrashing by the Seattle Sounders over the MLS' Colorado Rapids will be just enough to generate some public support.

Apparently an unnamed individual -- who the article suggests could be billionaire Paul Allen -- is willing to pay $30 million for a team. Not to mention, many other group have shown interest.

Here's what Allen's PR guy said:
"We think it would be great for pro soccer to find a home in Seattle," said Michael Nank, spokesman for Allen's Vulcan Inc. "Right now we are solely focused on the Trail Blazers and the Seahawks."
Sounds juicy.

Paul Allen? Crap. Talk about a good news, bad news situation. Aren't there any other billionaires in the area we could hit up to bring soccer to Seattle? Guys who are decent human beings and don't have green teeth? Is that too much to ask?
