After almost a month of Sounders away games, we finally got to return to our stadium for a soccer match. Here we are on the Link Light Rail, on the way into the city.
We did the whole nine yards again, or maybe I should say the "Full 90, Plus" , including the march to the match with green smoke bombs and all. There are no photos of that raucous event.
We climbed the ramps to the top tier of the stadium and were once again able to "dine alfresco".
In honor of Memorial Day there was a moment of silence
and then a young woman in uniform sang a wonderful rendition of the National Anthem.
It was a hard fought game against Kansas City, a very physical team, that ended in an exhausting 0-0 tie.
We walked off the tension by going up town to a more distant Link station for our ride home.
It was good to be back!
