Look, there’s no reason to pretend otherwise: video of famous people throwing fish at the Pike Place Market is about as much of a Seattle cliche as just about anything this side of drinking a Starbucks coffee at the top of the Space Needle. But darn it if watching Stefan Frei, Brad Evans and their newest teammate, Nicolas Lodeiro, do it isn’t just ... fun.
The trio was down at the iconic marketplace catching fish, shopping at the farmers’ stands, checking out the gum wall and generally doing some sort of "activation." Either way, good to see Sounders with smiles on their faces.
There have been plenty of reports of discord in the Sounders locker room and if it’s stuff like this that changes the mood, we’re all for it.
