Every journey starts with a first step, and then a second, and then a third. This is one of those many early steps in the 2014 journey. Seattle Sounders FC's first opponent in a year when they want to "run through walls" is appropriately the San Jose Earthquakes. The dark arts are strong in the rebranded team.
There are no keys to this game besides "don't get hurt." Everything about this first preseason match is answering a few questions about the path of 2014. What is Plan B? Who pairs with Marshall? What trialist makes a strong showing?
Sounder at Heart will have a few people watching the match, so if you are at The Parade and can't participate in the gamethread there will be a recap with some analysis. And tomorrow will be another match and then this weekend two more.
