Suite - uh, Sweet Game!

"Looking through the bent backed tulips
to see how the other half lives
looking through a glass onion"

- The Beatles, "Glass Onion" (1968)

One of our (Raleigh's) vendors scored me an extra ticket to tonight's Seattle Sounders FC game. Turns out it was in the club level. Got to see how the "other half" lives. 

Apparently they live with cushy chairs, carpeted floors, free beer (which I declined - see previous post), free appetizers (antipasto plate), free prime rib dinner cut & served by our personal chef, free coconut pie (chosen from our personal dessert cart), and a private bathroom. Not a bad effin' way to watch a soccer game.

Seattle beat Real Salt Lake 2-0. The crowd was amazing once again. Another sell-out with almost 30,000 fans in attendance. And that was with very cold weather and constant drizzle - of course, that didn't bother me - being in the club level and all.

Nate Jaqua scored first in the 17th minute, and the wonderkid Fredy Montero scored his third goal in two games in the 77th.

Two games, two wins, two shut-outs, two sell-outs. Not a bad way to start your inaugural season.

Extra special thanks goes out to Dean and the guys at ESP - thanks so much for the ticket, the hospitality, and the great time!
