Zach Scott joins Soccerly as columnist

If you’re on Twitter, I recommend following Sounders FC defender Zach Scott (here). Along the same lines, I am looking forward to Scott’s thoughts in his new column for Soccerly.com.

His first post published Friday. Here is a sample:

[We] have a small sided game we play before almost every practice called Blue vs Orange.  Why is it called that you may ask?  It’s because one team wears blue pinnies and the other wears orange (ingenious, I know).  Sometimes it’s 4 vs 4, sometimes it’s 10 vs 10 in a 20 yd by 40 yd small field.  …

There is a running tally of games won on the white board in the locker room and in years past the losers have had to buy the winners Jamba Juices or something like that.  It’s gotten so competitive that friendships have been tested, insults have been slung, and I may or may not have threatened to “punch you in the head” if you didn’t let us have the ball. 

Scott also offered thoughts on the mentality of preseason games and the team’s rookie center backs. Should be fun to follow throughout the year.
