Tomorrow night the Sounders must #beatsantos. It is also the beginning of the Jewish celebration of Purim.
Funny thing? These two events mesh perfectly... in fact, regardless of your spiritual views, by following some of the traditional Purim methods of celebration, you might help the Sounders.
Among the ways you're supposed to celebrate:You're supposed to make a lot of noise... so much as to drown out the name of the primary antagonist in the Purim story, Haman. For our purposes, we will call this antagonist "Herculez Gomez." Fans should make enough noise to drown out anything he does. Ideally, any sort of communication with folks he might want to pass the ball to.
You're supposed to get dressed up in costume on Purim. May I suggest Rave Green, Cascade Shale or... Super Cyan? Come decked out.
Festive drinking is a big part of Purim, too. The religious scholars differ on just how much you should drink, but we can favor the camp that says "a lot." This can help with the whole noise-making thing, too.
And here's hoping we can all leave the CLink in celebration, as well!
