Gearing Up For Sounders Soccer
Yesterday we bought two pre-season tickets to Sounders matches on line through Ticketmaster. It cost us $31.20 for two $10 tickets. Today tickets for another preseason match went on sale. Since it was another beautiful day, we decided to ride the light rail downtown to the ticket office at the stadium and pay $10 for a $10 ticket. We picked up tickets for three other people as well. We then walked down to the Pioneer Square area, did a little browsing in shops and had an early lunch at the original Great Harvest Baking Company. After a bit more walking and sightseeing, we stopped at a Starbucks for coffee and dessert, before heading back on the train. We did a bit more walking than we planned to, because the Park and Ride lot at our train station was full, so we had to drive back up the hill and park in a parking lot near our house. That made for a an extra mile each way to walk to the station. That's how I'm justifying the brownie I had at Starbucks. :-) Total miles, 4.5. While at the stadium we stopped at The Team Store. Maybe that was a mistake. They were having a sale. The season doesn't start until March, but Tom is ready for those cold, early matches - new stadium coat, new hat, new car flag. Go Sounders. I'm now sitting, icing my heel.
