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!
