Like a lot of folks last evening, I was having dinner outdoors and enjoying the sunset at Gasworks Park. I noticed this couple dressed in Sounders FC regalia and holding aloft a huge flag. The woman took a few pictures then joined the man in facing the setting sun, eyes closed, arms outstretched, Sounders flag and neck scarf furled in the wind. I wondered if there might be someone in the distance somewhere they were posing for, but saw no one. They stood that way for about 10 minutes, oblivious to anyone around as if in a prayer of thanksgiving :-) (I read today Seattle had a 2-1 victory over DC). This is a sports town, for sure! Another shot of them is at More Seattle Stuff.
