Back In The Game

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!


  1. The Sounders are doing great. Too bad about a tie, though! Love that picture of the two of you. :-)

  2. It is so wonderful that you can share this passion, yet another passion that keeps yo active.

  3. Ack there are more people in that stadium than I see in ten years:)

  4. Gorgeous photos, Linda! You guys really KNOW how to have fun. Yae!

  5. Those smiles tell it all. I keep forgetting that soccer can end in a tie. Must be a bit frustrating, but again, those smiles say all is well.

  6. I love that picture of you and Tom. I had to laugh at Far Side's comment. That's more people than I've probably ever seen. :)

  7. Yes, I think a lot of nervous tension would have to be released.
