First off if you want to be surprised by your box do not enter this post.
Today, FedEx rang and delivered the famous Green Box that each Seattle Sounders FC season ticket holder (99% of the Alliance) gets. This is one of the highlights of every winter as it means that live, local Sounders soccer is not far away.
This year's box is not a shoebox format, but a photo album style shipping container. In it you will get your match card or tickets, the 2013 member's scarf as voted on by the Alliance and a single page with functional data about the package, tickets and how to contact the team. It also had this note from the team.
The journey continues ...
Here we are - all of us together - at the beginning of a new season; with new faces, new challenges, and new stories to be written. Stories featuring heroes, backdrops and outcomes both familiar and unexpected. Tales that will live beyond the 2013 MLS season.
It goes on for another paragraph, but you'll get your package soon enough.
