Sounders FC’s superstar signing Clint Dempsey stayed on the East Coast following Saturday’s 2-1 road win at Toronto FC.

The U.S. men’s national team captain stuck around to do a bevy of interviews Monday with print and broadcast media. He, of course, is one of the few players who really resonate beyond established MLS fans, so you saw him on shows and places you don’t often see guys in this league.

Back home, the Sounders had a formal day off from training, particularly as half the team played a reserve game Sunday night in Florida, and Dempsey should be ready when practice resumes Wednesday.

Here is a list of the outlets that interviewed Dempsey during his tour (with links where available):
