Greetings from Seattle

End of the Season

We are Sounders fans.  

We are season ticket holders and go to all of the home matches.  We march and we sing and we chant. We sit on the edge of our seats feeling the tension and waiting, waiting for that goal, for a Sounders goal, and when it happens we erupt in a roar of cheers along with the rest of the 40,00 fanatics around us.  

During the season, from March to November, our hall tree looks like this. 
 But, alas, yesterday the Sounders season came to an end, not easily, but finally, after 90 minutes of regulation play, plus 30 minutes of overtime, plus a shoot out. It left the Seattle side drained, including all of us fans watching on TVs all over the region, and the Dallas players and fans exuberant to be moving on in the playoffs. 

Now it's Monday morning, time to move on.  It's dreary and raining non-stop again, depressing. And it is with sadness that I pack up our supporter gear and stow it away for this season. 
Maybe the sun will shine tomorrow.  I know we'll be back in March, supporting Sounders, wearing gear.

  5. You are my Number One sports fan, of all kinds. I know other people who are supporters of various local teams, but you get the prize for enthusiasm and dedication! I looked at our local news, only to find out how the Sounders did, thinking of you. They did a great job, even though they lost. :-(

  8. Sad to say goodbye to that gear for the year but you had to clear it to make way for your Seahawks stuff, right? You are such great supporters of the teams. Knowing nothing about sports, I just watch and think, "didn't they just run away from there a minute ago? Why are they in such a hurry to get back?"

  11. After many years of living with Seattle sports fans, I can only pass on the Seattle mantra "Wait 'til next year!" It sounds like the Sounders had quite a season though. Hope they make it all the way next season! :)
