The full story of Xander Bailey's time with Sounders

The friendly against Tottenham Hotspur carried a lot more meaning than these games usually do and that was entirely a credit to Xander Bailey. After signing with the Seattle Sounders through Make-A-Wish, Bailey trained with the team and then started the Tottenham match. Among the highlights were the way the team and fans embraced Bailey, who showed off some quality soccer skills along the way.

This is more of complete story than we've seen before and it includes a touching afterword that will likely cause a lot of us to randomly stub our toe or start cutting onions.

Definitely a good reminder about how this season has not always been quite so frustrating as it seems right now.
