This Friday night at 7:35 PM, the ShoWare Center in Kent is going to be rocking. The Foot Thunder will be strong. A good indoor soccer team, your Tacoma Stars (9-5), will be hosting the lowly Turlock Express (2-9). With seven players scoring five or more goals a game, you know there will be goals.
Former Sounders Academy players Jamael Cox, Duncan McCormick, Chase Hanson, and Troy Peterson are continuing their soccer careers with the Stars. Adam West, Joey Gjersten and Raphael Cox are names familiar to USL loyalists. There's also new talent to discover.
There are 2-dollar beers. And dancing mascots.
This all sounds fun, but we have even more good news!
Sounder at Heart, LEVYfilms and the Tacoma Stars set up a $15 dollar ticket that gets you great seats (in truth all seats at ShoWare are wonderful) and a trucker cap. Why a mesh snap-back trucker cap? Have you been to Kent? You'll want to fit in. Trust me, I know Kent.
I hope you come. We'll see some soccer in the warmth of an indoor arena. We'll be together again. And Foot Thunder will live on.
