MLS Insider takes us behind the scenes of #DempseyWatch

Documentary series shows us what went into bringing Clint Dempsey to the Seattle Sounders.

By now, you've probably seen or read a ton of Clint Dempsey interviews. This episode of MLS Insider is still worth watching. About 20 minutes of the 30-minute show is devoted to taking the viewer behind the scenes as the Seattle Sounders attempted to keep Dempsey's signing secret. We see some of the planning that went into his official unveiling, as well as see what Sounders front office staffers thought of #DempseyWatch.

There's also an interview conducted by Jimmy Conrad that, while going over a lot of the same territory as other interviews, manages to force Dempsey to veer from his obviously well-rehearsed set of answers. Conrad also had the benefit of interviewing Dempsey the night before he started his full-blown media blitz, so he probably hadn't grown quite as tired of answering most of the same questions. Dempsey even manages to laugh in this interview, something he hasn't done much of when talking to other media members.

UPDATE: Turns out, Jimmy Conrad's interview is not part of that video. Here it is:
