Recently we started doing a quick observations post - a bit of tactics, numerology, a quote, stuff. Tonight that seems the wrong path. People have feelings that aren't really explained away easily. There is anger and a quest for a quick fix and a desire to scream.
So this will not be observations about the game tonight. You know how you feel, and you aren't interested in much in the way of logic.
This instead is a simple request - keep stopping by Sounder at Heart. The season is over, but the team and the community are not finished.
In just over a week there will be the Expansion Draft. There will be the two round Re-Entry Draft. There will be rumors. The First Team is going to hire a new coach. Sounders2 is going to hire two new coaches, and sign some players. Darwin Jones, Jordan Morris and several other HGPs are probably going to sign. A couple players will probably retire.
Supporters Groups will party. There is a FIFA 15 tournament upcoming as well.
Here's the thing: "eternal blue, forever green" is not about a season. "You will hear us" doesn't have a "but not now since there isn't a game for almost two months" caveat.
Sounder at Heart is going to break down the season, look forward to next. We're going to relive greatness and gather around virtual shoulders and cry a bit.
So this is not an observations post. This is a request. You are a Sounder at Heart. That heart still beats, and until it doesn't please continue to make us your virtual home.
