Well, Seattle doesn't have the populations power that LA does. If it did, I'm pretty sure we could support more than 2 mere teams.

If we were to use the numbers from this site, MLS Attendance You will notice... Seattle still (barely) beats LA combined average totals. Seattle's 36,173 vs LA's combined total of 36,011. The reality is... there's not an empty seat in Seattle, but evidently there's some in LA: it says that Chivas' is almost 55% full and Galaxy is almost 84% full... Seattle is almost 108% full.

MLS attendance is only one gauge of "soccer craziness".

And I'm sure there are other examples at both the Rose Bowl and Coliseum.

Shows how much I pay attention to sports: I wasn't aware the Supersonics were no longer in Seattle until I saw that map, got curious, and looked it up. And I live near Seattle!

Anyone shocked that there are only 2 MLS teams in the entire southern region and that they are both in the state of Texas.
