That following Sunday we went to an actual game against the New York Red Bull. It was just dumping rain most of the game but Kasen was great and barely complained. She is a true fan. The photo below was not from that game, rather the one before that on 9/13 vs Salt Lake (yes on Debra's Birthday). This is her watching the team warm-up with her scarf up. This was actually taken professionally and appeared on a Sounders blog after the game.

Just the other night we got to go to a limited attendee signing with three players (Brad Evans, Ozzie Alonso, and Michael Gspurning). It was at the Pro Shop at the stadium and there were like 50 people there. Again she got to talk to players and get autographs (but they were not allowed to sign her dress, Evans even asked and she said no). She asked Gspurning if "do your hands hurt when you save the ball" (answer was sometime). She asked Ozzie "why do people call you honey badger" and he looked around at Brad and Michael and Brad said because he is an animal. She didn't have a question for Brad, he asked her if she was going to ask him what people call him....he told us B-RAD. It was really cool and fun for all of us, probably most for Karl

You ask, how did we get to do these things...Sounders have a reward program for going to games, buying stuff, and watching games. You earn points and can redeem them. Truly a great way to reward fans.
Until next time...
