Last summer Starbucks had some giveaway and I ended up with Mariners tix. We got to the game so early we even scored free parking, had the stadium almost all to ourselves for a little while and because it was a freebie we didn’t even grimace when we left a couple innings in to get the guys home for bed-time. Well, the guys had such a blast and I know nothing about sports except hockey so I signed us up for tickets for the Sounders in a couple weeks. I realized later this is 18 games!! Well, we’ll see how we do. For now, here is what started it all. Maybe we’ll end up huge soccer fans.
