Vicky B's First Sounders FC Game

Hey Rockaholics! 

 

Recently I got to do something I have never done before. . . I went to my first ever Sounders FC game!

 

Now, I've been to many live sporting events in my life including baseball, football, and even some Club America soccer games but never got the chance to make it to a Sounders game until now.

 

Even though they lost, it was still a blast and I’d like to thank my buddy Chase for letting me tag along!

He even showed my the wall of Washington state high school helmets and I found mine (The Lake Stevens Vikings)!

Now something that makes watching soccer live better for me than any other sports because I played for 9 years.


 

When I watch football or baseball, I will cheer and yell because I know the basics of the game, but there is something about really knowing a sport and having that history playing that makes any game that much more intense.

 

I was yelling at the team to shorten the field, to give the side forwards someone to pass it to in the goal, shouting at the players to spread out and look to who they’re passing to. I know they can’t hear me, but in that moment, I felt like what my coaches felt when I was playing.

It really pumped me up to play again. In the last 12 years, I have only played maybe 5 times on a team. The last time was a good 4-5 years ago, and even though I was winded…a lot, I had so much fun.

I played many sports as a kid, but the only one that stuck was soccer. It was something my dad and I could bond over. Sometimes I regret not staying on a team, but that doesn’t mean I can’t now.

Hopefully this summer will be that chance.

 

Anywho, I want to hear from you. What is something you’ve done recently for the very FIRST time?
