A great night at George and Dragon in Fremont with Gorilla FC and Sounders FC players James Riley, Steve Zakuani and Patrick Ianni.
Also in the house tonight: Sounders FC senior vice president of business operations Gary Wright, who wished me well on my next venture; Matt Gaschk from SoundersFC.com, Steve Clare from ProstAmerika and Dave Clark from Sounderatheart.
I was very moved by a fan (who will remain nameless) who came up to me and thanked me for my work. Moments like those make this job even better.
Anyway let’s have some fun.
Kevin Zelko of Gorilla FC, who told me a great story about his yellow T-shirt, holds a tube full of cash. Before the money was counted, at least $7,000 had been raised and the place was PACKED.
