Sounders to meet fans at Pacific Place today

The Sounders will train this morning at Starfire. (The Sunday morning practice isn't punishment for yesterday's scoreless draw with Chivas USA ... it was scheduled in advance.)

Then several will head up to the Pacific Place shopping area in downtown Seattle where they will meet fans at the team's Pro Shop.

Here's the announcement from the club:

Sounders FC players will appear at The Pro Shop at Pacific Place on Sunday, September 20 from 2-4 p.m. The U.S. Open Cup trophy will also be on display for fans to view and pose for photographs.

The Pro Shop at Pacific Place is located on Level-3 next to Benetton. The Shop features a wide variety of Sounders FC and Seahawks team merchandise, including authentic jerseys, outerwear, hats, household items and sports jewelry, along with women’s and children’s clothing.

The appearance is part of the Pacific Place “All For Fall Seattle Sports Spectacular”. Players scheduled to appear include the following:

2-3 p.m. -- Taylor Graham, Jhon Kennedy Hurtado

3-4 p.m.-- Evan Brown, Patrick Ianni

Due to varying line length, staff cannot always guarantee that all those in line will receive autographs. For this reason, autographs are limited to two per person.

I'm about to leave for the practice and will report back with whatever news comes out of that.
