I guess I always assume that everybody who reads this page is also reading everything else I read that's Sounders-related. But since this may not be the case, here are a few things that I've seen around the Soundersphere that may be of interest to you.
- First, thank me. I didn't say anything about Osvaldo Alonso's quad contusion, which is (crossing fingers) better now. So if I am your official Sounders source, I spared you heart failure. You're welcome.
- And if you're looking for a little Samba to get you in the mood for the game: Samba y Sabor, Heaven Nightclub, 2nd and Washington, 3:00 onward.
- Prost Amerika has its weekly Meaningless Statistical Guide to the San Jose Game. (Seriously, I live for these things.) Because where else can you learn that:
Darren Huckerby’s birthday is April 23rd which is also St Georges day, the patron saint of his native England. Nobody in the Sounders squad was born in August or September.
Fascinating yet...totally random. (In other words, probably exactly what some neurologist will one day say about my brain.)
Again, you're welcome.
