We stopped at our favorite pre-func venue on Occidental Street to people watch and have a latte.
In Occidental Park we listened to Sound Wave until it was time for the March to the Match.
Along the four block march route we sang and chanted our way to the stadium. Climbing the ramp to the upper level, we looked over the north plaza below.
When we found out the game was delayed to fit the TV network schedule we milled about and watched the sun set over Elliot Bay.
The game was against one of our biggest rivals, Real Salt Lake, and it was intense! We finally won it with a tie breaking goal in the final minute of extra time. The 40,000 fans exploded in an up roar of celebration!
We took our time leaving the stadium and then blended into the crowds heading into the city, where we caught the light rail farther up the line.
This morning we attended a soccer match of a different sort. Irene had her first game of her youth soccer season.
These are the U-10 Mud Dogs, looking good in there spiffy new blue and orange uniforms!
But they still think a cup cake is the perfect way to finish a game!
And they won handily, 5-0. They're off to a good start.
