Imagine MLS Seattle
It isn't hard to do
We'd have a team to die for
We'd win some trophies too
Imagine thirty thousand people
Cheering in the stands...

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And cheer for our team as one

So with about 16 months to go until MLS Seattle kicks off, over TEN THOUSAND deposits have been made for season tickets. And it's not like all the soccer fans in the city have signed up already, either... many are waiting on the team name and/or ticket prices to be released. This begs the question... how high can we go? Would 20K be all that far-fetched? With 20 thousand season ticket holders, the lower bowl could get sellouts frequently, and the atmosphere would surely be the best for any soccer team in the United States. The lower bowl with the 'Hawks Nest' added probably could hold nearly thirty thousand people. Imagine...

I'd love to see the Sounders/whatever benefit from a Seahawks-lite atmosphere in Qwest. I don't think it's likely to happen, but man, people in the U.S. need to understand how to cheer for soccer.
