TUKWILA - Love him or hate him.
There won't be much in-between this week when it comes to Sounders FC forward/midfielder Roger Levesque. The scruffy-haired 30-year-old has been a fixture in Seattle's soccer rivalry with Portland for almost a decade, and despised by Timbers fans nearly every step of the way.
That animosity was best demonstrated in October of 2007, when he volunteered to play as a guest player for Portland in an exhibition against Toronto at PGE Park. At that time, the Sounders were undecided on whether they'd field a team in the season before their MLS leap.
