Daily coverage of Seattle Sounders FC, MLS and world soccer.

Domingo en el parque/Sunday in the park

Now in my world, that calls for some carne asada and chicken and burgers and whatever else on the grill on a beautiful day, but this morning it had to do with soccer.

Coach Sigi Schmid said he hated to drag us (myself and another reporter and team staff) out on a Sunday. But no problem here, it was kind of nice.

Sounders FC practiced at Starfire while youth games were being played nearby, and that gave a lot of fans young and older the opportunity to watch the team through fences and seek autographs and photos.

Of course, players are generally happy to oblige. Here’s some photos from today.

Fredy Montero watches a jersey being tossed over the fence for him to sign.

Kasey Keller is a big hit.
