I thoroughly enjoy heading down to Starfire to watch our boys practice, it is absolutely one of my favorite mid-week activities. Tomorrow our boys will begin their 2014 campaign and I would love to see many S@H readers at their first practice at 10am. I am not saying that it will definitely fit into everyone’s plans, especially those who are reading this from afar, but it is a Saturday and the BPL is on hold for the FA Cup.
I know that many were horribly disappointed with the manner in which the Sounders finished the 2013 season, I was one of them. But, the players also felt the sting of defeat. I hope to rally you to show up in the morning to display your support for our returning players and give a taste of what to expect for the new ones. We will not see Dempsey (he is of course in England), or Brad and Yedlin (they are returning from Brazil). However, we will get the first chance to see some new faces and thanks to Joshua Mayers we will know their jersey numbers.
New Sounders FC jersey numbers: Hahnemann 1; Anibaba 4; Marshall 5; Bowen 7; Kovar 11; Okoli 13; Remick 15; Frei 24; Lowe 31; Cooper 33.— Joshua Mayers (@joshuamayers) January 23, 2014
If you have never been to a practice at Starfire, here is a link to get driving directions. Once you are on the campus, follow the road as you pass the large athletic building and children’s play area on your right. When you have reached the end there will be a parking area and you will see these gates
which will be open. Walk down the path and the field at the end is where you will find our boys. I hope to see some of you there!
