Seattle Sounders FC Badge
Originally uploaded by kiki5253
I went to my first Seattle Sounders FC game today. It wasn't the greatest of games. A lot of shoving, bad calls, calls that should've been made and desperation at the end. There were some pretty close shots - it's a shame they didn't go in at all. The Sounders definitely are not having the same season that that they had last year. The passing game is a little off and the plays don't look as clean. The shots would be about a ball's width away from the goal.
The crowd was excited and I noticed that the fans who are really into
football are attempting to create the same atmosphere in that of the English Premiere League. Maybe I'm just not loyal enough to all my teams, but it wasn't quite my cup of tea. I did enjoy the game and I will always love soccer more than any other sport. But, I think I'll still prefer my Mariners and a relaxing afternoon at Safeco Field.
I do have yet to hit up my first Mariner's game of the season. I think I'll have a work function outing to one the first week of June. That should be a lot of fun.
