I got this email and image from the league with the following description:
MLS Communications will highlight one photograph each day as First Kick 2010, presented by Dick’s Sporting Goods, approaches. The images will represent moments from clubs’ travels and preparations for the start of the 2010 MLS season, which opens Thursday, March 25 when Seattle Sounders FC host Philadelphia Union at 9:30 p.m. ET (ESPN2, ESPNDeportes, ESPN360.com).
This photo was taken by the team in La Manga, Spain, during a 1-0 win by the Sounders FC against SK Brann. This is also a great example as to why Freddie Ljungberg is bulking up for this season.
