Now I wonder, should I be devoting this space to mentioning fans of the Reds? But this was brought to my attention by a co-worker (initials G.D.) who is not yet feeling the soccer and Sounders FC vibe. Thanks.
This report, which is in the Associated Press and Canadian Press, mentions a pair of young TFC fans who are in some deep you-know-what for throwing flares at last night’s TFC win over Chivas USA.
I have seen Sounders FC supporters with flares — at the exhibition match vs. U. of Portland in February — but they were not thrown and I believe the fans were escorted off the premises.
