The Reds invade Starfire

Sounds like some Star Wars prequel, sequel, whatever. Come to think of it, remember when the rebels were attacking the Death Star and Luke Skywalker was Red Leader or something piloting the X-wing fighter with R2D2 in the back? I remember Darth Vader was in a Tie Fighter and he shot down Red Five or one of those numbers. Loved that scene.
Anyway, I got a kick out of Bustacat’s comment. Thanks for the suggestion, but as a radio host once said, “Less of me and more of you is a good thing.” Actually it was the other way around, but whatever. If I did one of those video promos, I would probably try to do an impression of someone.
It got me to thinking, who would be perfect to do a promo for a big Sounders FC game? Not that it is needed because of the great attendance at matches, but I did talk to Adrian Hanauer about this and he said he likes the idea because it just gets people more interested in the match when they see a celeb.
Hmmm…Jim Mora, coach of the Seahawks, is a pretty upbeat and energetic guy who would be great. How about Drew Carey? Ichiro in Japanese, Felix Hernandez in Spanish and Matt Hasselbeck in English? Love that idea.
Anyone have any suggestions as to who would make a good pitchman/woman?
Sir Mix-a-Lot with Pike Place Market in the background? Or Kenny G or Ann Wilson?
Here’s video of Toronto FC (the Reds of MLS) arriving at Starfire for practice about an hour after Sounders FC practice was over.
