Whew! What an opening day!

I jumped on the Sounders FC beat midway through preseason last year so the whirlwind that is Day 1 caught me a bit by surprise. Check out this story for tomorrow’s paper and a mess of coverage on the blog in case you missed it.

Here are a handful of links I wanted to pass along before calling it a day.

* * *

— U.S. Soccer said 23,000 tickets have been sold for that March 26 friendly against Argentina in New Jersey (the one previously believed to be coming to Seattle).

— Four-percent of American sports fans say soccer is their favorite sport.

— The MLS website has some very early power rankings and some hot-shot goalkeeper from Cal has signed a Generation Adidas contract and will join a team through a weighted lottery.

— Lastly, here’s Ronaldinho scoring a goal in the most bizarre and brilliant way ever. Plus, a hilarious stretcher mishap after the jump.

See you tomorrow.
