Roger Levesque Retires: As Told Through Social Media

Roger Levesque was many things during his nine-year career as a member of the Seattle Sounders. Boring was not one of them. He was as generous with his time as any player and was always good for a quote when you needed one. It's hard to imagine he'll ever be surpassed in terms of popularity.

We probably all saw a little of ourselves in him and would like to believe that we would have behaved the same way if we were to ever become professional athletes. He really was an "everyman." That his playing career included so many legitimate highlights only makes his story better.

I've collected some of the bits of social media that help explain why he was so popular.
