Clear and 46 degrees in Fort Lauderdale as I write this, and I am not there. But Chris Henderson, Sounders FC technical director is.
He said the combine schedule was changed to make today the off day because of the cold weather. It was 44 degrees with rain and wind there yesterday during games.
Henderson said it’s business as usual for the club as it evaluates players at the combine. Team executives would not comment on the state of the CBA talks and what that means to the club.
The whole staff is in Florida, though not all will travel to Philadelphia for the draft Thursday.
More from the combine coming this week, stay tuned. On a side note, I watched a little of the FC Barcelona-Tenerife match today, and all I can think about is how much Carlos Puyol looks like any member of the hair band Winger.
