The championship intramural soccer team from Joint Base Lewis-McChord watched Sounders training today at Starfire Sports Complex, and after the session met the Sounders and competed with them in ball juggling.
"They had a … tournament on the base, and these guys were the champions. It was great to see them up here," Sounders coach Sigi Schmid said.
"... All our guys realize there are a lot of facets of life, and we bring a little bit of entertainment to people. But these guys do a tremendous job of protecting our country, and the service they give to our country is outstanding.""... It was good. The guys hanging out and being with them. It’s funny: Gspurning. We were saying, ‘Is there anybody on our team that went throught the military, and Michael had to do like six months in Austria. So we talked about the Austrian military. He said, it really isn’t a comparison.
