No Sounders were named to the MLS All-Star First XI today. I figured Osvaldo Alonso had the best shot, but no.

Here’s the First XI: GK Jimmy Nielsen (SKC); D Steven Beitashour (SJ), Jay DeMerit (Van), Aurelien Collin (SKC), Heath Pearce (NY); M Dwayne De Rosario (DC), Landon Donovan (LA), Graham Zusi (SKC), David Beckham (LA); F Thierry Henry (NY), Chris Wondolowski (SJ).

Those will not necessarily be the starters when the MLS All-Stars meet European champion Chelsea FC on July 25 at PPL Park in Chester, Penn. The remainder of the roster will be announced next Sunday at halftime of ESPN’s telecast of the Sounders match at New York.

    Just goes to show why Sigi is a genius ….
    3 x US Open Cup Champs (never missed)
    1 x Cascadia Cup Champs (never missed)
    3 x Playoffs (never missed)
    Playoffs an expectation,
    MLS Cup is the goal.

    That’s how we roll.

    I’m looking at you, Mariners/Seahawks/everyone else.
