So when I was dicking around with a project I'm working on involving writing sonnets, I started writing one to memorialize the importance of Starfire Sports Complex, with the knowledge that due to possible changes in the US Open Cup we may not be able to get as many home matches in next year's cup. I thought it might be of interest here, so I thought I'd throw it up.
Oh home to many US Open Cups!
Arena of arenas, Jaqua's realm,
Where he upon the nets of others sups,
And feasts upon the cross with bandaged helm!
Oh brave Tukwilan bastion, second home,
Undefeated haven of the Sound
Where Terry Boss and Mike Fucito roam,
And others' hopes of silverware are drowned!
Oh simple Complex, cozy, close, and small,
Where great Support cheers on Electric Green!
Divinest pitch, from which all others fall,
The font of flowing goals and endless clean
Sheets for the Sounders. Let us joy in thee
For in thy confines there rests victory.
