ExtraTime Radio: Has LA-Seattle become the biggest game in MLS? Plus, Tab Ramos on youth development

The Best in MLS?

Here's what it looked like the last time the LA Galaxy and Seattle Sounders faced off back in May. Are fans in for a repeat peformance from the Galaxy on Saturday, or will the Sounders keep their momentum going with a result on the road? The guys preview the match with Galaxy associate head coach Dave Sarachan and wonder if LA-Seattle has become the biggest game in MLS right now.

US Under-20 national team coach Tab Ramos also weighs in MLSsoccer.com's 24 Under 24 series and who he thinks is the best young player in league history (hint: it's not Landon Donovan).

The guys also try and solve a nagging bear issue for one MLS player's wife, Simon explains how the Maltese and Dutch became soccer enemies and Nick offers an eye-opening experience from birthing class with his wife.
