Sporting XBOX 360 jerseys in neon-green, looking like a Microsoft game website charged with Silverlight, the Seattle Sounders, an explansion team in the MLS (US' major league soccer), brought a smile to my face.
Paul Allen, one of the co-founders of Microsoft, is one of the owners.
Fredy Montero, a young 22, showed how the greats do it - I was impressed! He was instrumental in all 3 Sounders goals in their very first MLS game against the New York Red Bulls. Nobody knows how the rest of the season will go, or what the future holds in store for Montero, but I'm looking forward to seeing him play...
Now, wouldn't it be great if Silicon Valley's San Jose Earthquakes were sponsored by Google? The Earthquakes could wear the complement - blue jerseys with green shorts - and sport a "shaky-quaky" Google doodle.
