Sounders FC practice, 8-11-09

Not much to speak of today. Team will take tomorrow off. Le Toux, Hurtado and King were out there practicing.
Turns out that Pete Vagenas grew up just a couple of miles from where my sister lives in Pasadena, CA. Small world.
Sounders FC has a new player in for a trial this week — Danny Mwanga, a sophomore at Oregon State from Jefferson HS in Portland (the Democrats). Mwanga practiced today, might only be with the team until the end of the week. He was the Pac-10 freshman of the year last season after scoring four goals in 11 starts. Read his OSU bio here, he’s a pretty big guy.
Reda Doulyazal, who came for a trial a couple of weeks ago, has since left the team.
Soundersfan: Still awaiting newspaper approval (or denial) on that Open Cup final trip. But you know I WANT to be there. Hopefully I will know soon.
