UPDATE: Zach Scott has personally invited Jones to a match.
.@Lesdoggg DM me your contact info. Let's see if we can work out getting you to a Sounders game to watch some ball kicking pitch-side.— zk scott (@zkscott) November 1, 2016
You may know Leslie Jones from her work on Saturday Night Live or Ghostbusters. You may remember how she fell in love with the Summer Olympics and eventually became the game’s ambassador.
Well, her latest fascination appears to be soccer, or more specifically the attractiveness of the players. One thing eventually led to another and now it appears she’s a Seattle Sounders fan. Here’s how it went down:
Ummmm soccer players are HOT!! Even the coaches are fine. Damn! pic.twitter.com/dG2zVmaqRj— Leslie Jones (@Lesdoggg) October 28, 2016
Many responded to her with suggestions, but this tweet seems to have really piqued her interest:
I would learn all the soccer if I had one of them! "What baby, he had to do a "spot kick"! Yea I see boo, he is a "booter"!" I'm ready YALL! pic.twitter.com/Irfav1usLX— Leslie Jones (@Lesdoggg) October 30, 2016
Now alerted, the Sounders were only too happy to stoke the fire.
Zach Scott, at least, may be willing to oblige...
I've finally made it and all it took was taking my pants off https://t.co/OUJCtLcro6— zk scott (@zkscott) October 30, 2016
And sure enough, it would appear that Jones will be checking out tonight’s game.
The Sounders’ bandwagon has plenty of room, and even if this is what it takes to get Jones on it she’s certainly welcome aboard. Maybe if the Sounders advance to conference semifinals, we’ll get a personal visit.
