Sounders FC training Tuesday at Starfire — photo reel

Not much news came out of training today, other than the cold, windy, rainy weather. Most of the guys were bundled up in winter gear, but practice went on as usual. Sanna Nyassi will be gone all week, but there are a couple invitees around including: Jamel Wallace, Tye Perdido and Jordan Jennings.

It was a pretty typical routine before gameday. Some scrimmage work, set piece practice and some finishing drills. They also took some penalty kicks at the end to prepare for that possibility tomorrow night.

Apparently the turf was having some issues with the rain and collected some puddles. We’ll see if that comes into play tomorrow.

Here are the shots:

1. Extra points to Mike Fucito for forgoing a jacket and braving the elements with the sleeveless.

2. Terry Boss comes up a diving save in a finishing drill in his last day as a 28-year-old.

3. Chelada? Spice up your beer? That’s new…

4. Starfire wasn’t packed like it was Monday. Expect it to be wild Wednesday with a sold-out crowd.

5. Time to stretch it out. After tomorrow night’s game there’s a cross-country flight looming.
