Kara's Adventures in Sounderland

Kara takes photos, blogs and travels with the 2008 Seattle Sounders!

Anyway, at our Tacoma stop, I noticed a group of cars on the far side of the parking lot, and it turned out to be the ECS, following us down to the Rose City. Slightly creepy, but admirably devoted. They gave us the signature salute as we exited the lot and got back on the freeway. Before leaving PGE, a Timber Militant (sufficiently hammered) likewise gave us a send-off. He crashed onto the bus and started to sing one of their chants, which I can’t reprint to maintain my PG rating, but essentially involved a motif of burning the Sounders on a pyre and many manifestations of the “F word”. The funny thing was, it took us a bit to figure out was going on, so we were all just sitting there politely listen to him. But Leighton O’Brien (our fiery captain), finally snapped to and began to ask that the man depart with a few manifestations of his own.
