The Sounders have concluded practice for another day, this time at Qwest Field.
Top news came from coach Sigi Schmid, who revealed that Michael Fucito underwent successful surgery this week. There was no clear timetable for his return, however it could be this season.
Schmid also said that newly signed Michael Seamon will get his chances to contribute this season, certainly in non-league, and possibly in league play as well.
And finally, there was an attention-getting new mohawk hair style from Freddie Ljungberg, who explained simply that it was "about time" for a new look.
