The last time HBO Real Sports had an MLS-related report, it was less than flattering for the league.

That will apparently not be the case this time.

HBO’s “Real Sports” is set to air a report tonight that will profile the Seattle Sounders, their owners and impressive fanbase. The episode, which begins at 10pm ET, sees reporter Jon Frankel travel to Seattle to interview minority owner Drew Carey and observe the Sounders’ fans in action during their well-publicized March to the Match and the ensuing game.

The tone of the feature seems to be a positive one, a stark difference than the special from two months ago which highlighted the alleged racial discrimination against Chivas USA.

Here is a brief preview of tonight’s feature on the Sounders:
