My friend at La Super Deportiva, Raul “El Rulas” Sandoval, tells me that Seattle forward Fredy Montero is back from another offseason trip to his native Colombia.
That would indicate to me that he will be at Sounders FC’s opening of training camp next Monday. But stranger things have happened.
You can hear Sandoval interview Montero tomorrow (en espan~ol) on his show starting at 11 a.m. on 1540-AM in Seattle.
Also thanks to reader Holland Guldberg for sending me the link to this sweet live web cam of Red Bull Arena (new home of New York Red Bulls) under construction. It looks almost ready to be played in.
One more thing – Terrible, sad news out of Haiti with the death of so many in the earthquake, including at least 30 members of its soccer federation according to the Associated Press. I remember watching Haiti play Honduras in the Gold Cup at Qwest Field last summer and I was impressed with how determined the Haitians played. They were not the better team on the field but were very close to getting a point out of that match before a late goal.
