Yep, that’s Tyrone Marshall in the top left of this picture. The Colorado Rapids, your reigning MLS Cup champions, visited the White House on Monday. Even though Marshall was a Sounder last year, he got to make the trip with his new teammates and meet President Barack Obama.

I’m pretty sure that’s Danny Earls in the middle row, second from the right. The Irish defender was in Sounders FC camp earlier this season after an offseason trade, but it didn’t work out and he ended up back in Colorado.

I didn’t see Sanna Nyassi, another former Sounder, in any of the pictures however.

According to MLS, the Rapids “toured the White House, presented President Obama with a team jersey, and then conducted a soccer clinic on the South Lawn, in conjunction with MLS W.O.R.K.S., for children of military families.”
