We got a briefing from coach Sigi Schmid today about the Sounders' training in Arizona.
He opened the conference with congratulations to the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. Afterward we asked him how his team spend Super Bowl Sunday.
"We started off on Saturday by having our own football game," he said. "… Within our game, the Seahawks easily beat the Broncos in that football game on Saturday. On Sunday, we gave the guys the day off. … A lot of the guys were here at the hotel and watched the game together at the hotel. There were a bunch of TVs all over the place and had some specialty food stuff and things like that they could kind of nosh on. And some guys got together and went to places like Buffalo Wild Wings and different places around. As a coaching staff we went together someplace and watched the game – bought some drinks for some Broncos fans so they could drown their miseries.
"And we’re hoping that the smell of victory that exists at VMAC, we’re able to breathe in and bring into our DNA and hopefully we’re able to have another parade in December."
