Seattle Sounders Media Match

The start of the MLS season is here and out in Seattle as part of the festivities, the Seattle Sounders host a Media Match. Sixty members of your esteemed media covering the team get to play in a full 90 minute game on the actual pitch at Century Link Field. Well, “play” is a relative term. It more resembles a pub league without the alcohol to take the edge off. Still it was a great experience and yours truly ALMOST scored a goal.


Anyway, I was in much better shape for this year’s game, which meant I could run around and not need medical attention afterwards. With that milestone set, here is my five year plan to become the most dominant media player on the field:

2021: Increase fitness.

2022: Increase explosiveness.

2023: Increase technical ability.

2024: Work on flair.

2025 (big 5-0): Don’t die.

See you all in 2021 and enjoy the 2020 MLS season!
