    I just have to take a moment to say that the Sounders Women are an absolutely fabulous addition to the Seattle soccer community.
    I took my sons to see the Sounders Women play on Friday night, and Hope Solo graciously posed for a photo with my 7-year-old that he’ll never forget. He’s shown it to all thd grandparents and told me “I’m kinda Hope Solo’s friend now.”
    Great connections being built!

    Amen to that! Having survived the legislative sessions, I celebrated by going to the Sounders Women Friday night, and the Sounders Saturday.

    Now a two week draught- darn!!! The women looked great- and not just the national team members (we now have six!, plus Mexico National Perez) but all of the other amateurs. Met one of the gals folks, who says they are inspired playing with the national team members.

    Didn’t even try for an autograph- let the kids enjoy Autograph Alley- but will be at Cheney on May 30th looking for some for my one year old great-niece (she who had soccer shoes on under her Snow White costume on Halloween- great-grandmother may want a princess, but I want a soccer star in the family!).

    I just hope we get print coverage of the Sounders Women in the future (not a criticism of you, Don- but tell your editors there is fan interest…)

    TEN bucks for a U-23 match? P.T. Barnum was right.
