I Love Seattle Sounders FC

A trip back through my Instagram confirmed it

Goons!

Regardless of what happens on Sunday at CenturyLink Field, I'm Sounders Til I Die. We've had the most fun and made the best memories over 11 seasons.

My first ever match, Fredy Montero, Freddie Ljungberg, Sebastian Le Toux, KASEY FREAKIN' KELLER, Steve Zakuani, Taylor Graham, and of course, scruffy Brad Evans. Andy Harms snagged tickets and took us and I couldn't get over how awesome the fans were at the match.

Reminiscing about my first ever @SoundersFC match. @harmsonair snagged tickets in my first week and took me to a then Qwest Field. This kid must be driving by now!

From there I ended up meeting a great gang of nerds, getting in on incredible 2010 season tickets with my buddy Brian (we'll be sitting there on Sunday), and drinking way too many beers. Way too many... You can see just how much this squad means to me and why it's almost unbelievable to be watching the biggest game they've ever played at home together.

More digging into the @SoundersFC past -- I’ve shared tickets with these guys for a decade. They kindly tolerate me and my antics. ❤️ #MLSCup

There was that time Sounders FC asked me to play game show host in the Scarf Car:

My ballerina wife doesn't like sports, but she likes me and loves Pride:

Beautiful #Seattle day with the @soundersfc! #pride

There was the time we wanted to cheer on a friend for his last match:

ROSS, we'll miss you in #Seattle!

And that time they let us ref it...

Hard BUT fair ref'ing during the @SoundersFC match. #Seattle

I made some new friends like Kelly who had this awesome keeper kit made for me!

Look what Kelly made me! THANKS! #keeperkit

I still think my fondest memory besides that first day wasn't even at the stadium. We were at Kool Keith's house watching Seattle beat Toronto on the road in penalty kicks to win MLS Cup!

#Seattle @SoundersFC are the CHAMPIONS!!!

There are a million more photos of us going to the parade, traveling the following year for the re-match and everything else. What a great run it's been over the last 11 seasons. Regardless if Seattle gets it done on Sunday, we've had the most fun supporting something fun like Sounders FC.

Now, let's see you get that second star!!!
