shirtlifterbear isn't the only soccer fan around here.

I had to pick up my sister from the train station, so I stopped by and got myself a scarf. My sister and I want to hit up a couple games this season. Anyone want to join us? Chris? We have floor space you can crash on if you get stuck on this side of the sound due to the game.

Great idea! If you've got any ideas about which games you want, I get a discount and preferential purchasing!

PS It's actually pertinent NOW because single game tix are selling out like mad... BOTH games I got extra seats for (Mar. 19 and May 10) are SOLD OUT now!

I sent the schedule on to my sister, and we'll see what works for her.

So... When I saw the Sounders play against the Timber's last year, the Timber's Army came with horn section, a drum section, and a whole lot of awesome chants.

Any place I can find some pro-sounders chants to learn before game time?

There's a few being bantered around, and Emerald City Supporters have a chunk they sing:

I am not a FAN of the ECS, mind you, because they have six uses of the word "gay" on their forums, and not once is it in a positive context, but they will at least give a starting line to grow from.

Ooh... And they have a song sheet:

I'm always surprised when I hear gay used in a negative way in Seattle, given how liberal the town seems to be. But it seems homophobia is the racism of the 21st century, and some people are bound and determined to be on the wrong side of history.

Have you seen the Wanda Sykes and Hillary Duff anti-"that's so gay" PSAs?

They're actually pretty good!

I'm not actually HyperSensitiveGayMan when it comes to things like this, but I was looking for a Gay group to go to games with, so it hit me in the face that ECS was NOT the group to join.

You should form a group.

Oh, in other news, it's a small world. I have a friend, Josh (herne51), who says he knows you from "ATC".
