I went to my first professional Soccer game last night and I LOVED it!!! Let me tell you Seattle Sounders fans are the craziest kind of fan EVER! Now I love me some NFL football and I think Steelers fans are pretty amazing, but they could take lessons from Sounders fans.
-As the team was introduced the announcer only said the first name of each player because the entire crowd yelled the last name of each player.
-12,000 + people sung the National Anthem and didn’t mess it up.
-12,000 + people stood for the ENTIRE match!!
-12,000+ people knew the words to ever song and chant and were singing and chanting the ENTIRE match!
-Soccer fans are Hard Core when the refs mess up or there is an injury to an opponent. No sympathy and profanity is apparently a necessity.
I have never experienced anything like it, and let me tell you I’m hooked! The Sounders won 1 to 0. Even though there was only one goal scored it was constant non-stop action the whole time. I was jumping up and down with excitement the whole 90+ minutes!
I can’t wait until I get to go to another match!
Finally a home-town team I’m proud to be a fan of!!!
Our seats were awesome!!! This picture was taken from our seats.
Me on the end, Danielle, Cara and Sandi.
Thank you Sandi for being a season ticket holder and getting extra tickets for us to this game!
With last nights win the Sounders are playoff bound and I can’t wait to see how they do!
