Dynamo already at Qwest Field

One player is, technically. Houston GK Pat Onstad is one of the two goalkeepers on the giant lithographs on the tarps that cover the upper decks at Qwest.
Onstad, 41, is from Vancouver B.C.and his likeness is on the west side of the stadium. Sounders FC president Gary Wright told me today that it was just a coincidence that the team picked a photo of a keeper for the tarp that happened to be Onstad.
Judge for yourself. Onstad’s mug from ESPN Soccernet:

I asked Nate Jaqua about having his former teammate being a part of Sounders FC’s home field.
“It’s hard to tell, but it looks like it could be him,” Jaqua said. “It’s a little strange but I don’t really give it a second thought.”
