Sounders FC

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

October 16, 2009 at 10:11 AM

La lluvia ha llegado con ganas

“The serious rain has arrived.”
OK well it probably already did but I was in a sunny place earlier in the week. Sounders FC got through a quick hour-long practice that just ended about 10 minutes ago and jogged off the fields at Starfire to A) get out of the rain; and B) get packed up and cleaned up for the flight to Kansas City.
Wish I was going, love the BBQ there! Gates is so delicious.
We did get a moment with Sigi Schmid, who said that James Riley has a sore ankle but will make the trip.
“James was better today,” Schmid said. The plan with Riley was to see how well he got through today and then make a decsion, and for now the decision is to bring him and then judge tomorrow if he can play.
Freddie Ljungberg got in a full practice and is OK to play.
The Los Angeles Daily Breeze has a story about Jonathan Bornstein and the reaction to his goal that propelled Honduras in the World Cup. A newspaper in that country ran a headline: “Bornstein, Honduras te ama.”
“Bornstein, Honduras loves you.”
Here’s a bit more from that story:

And speaking of the president, he personally invited Bornstein to visit so they could congratulate him. Something about a five-star resort in the Bay Islands.
“Wow,” Bornstein said Thursday after arriving from Washington. “They must be pretty excited. It’s crazy how one goal can change a whole country’s World Cup fate, and you’re not even part of that country.
“It’s pretty cool how soccer works sometimes.”
