It took me a minute to place the face but swear I saw you among the 67,000 Sunday night at the soccer game.

Wow! 
I spotted my neighbor there as well. Amazing being able to find someone we know out of such a huge crowd!

I always find it amazing when you randomly run into someone like that, and yet if you say to someone "I'm sure I'll see you at the concert (game, etc.)", you can't find them! What's up with that?

Interesting side note to that game. Read an article claiming that the game was the 3rd highest attended soccer match in the world that weekend. Beaten in attendance by only 2 Bundesleague games in Germany. Pretty impressive. Seattle fans are always good at jumping on a successful team. It's the Sounders turn now...

To add even more emphasis, there were only two other soccer matches in the WORLD with higher attendance numbers for that weekend
  1. Bayern Munich season opener in Germany
  2. Manchester United season opener in England
  3. Seattle Sounders rivalrly game vs Portland Timbers
I'm curious...how much interest would there be in a group outing to a Sounders match?

I'd go. Never been. Been interested to see what's it all about. I can explain why Americans can't understand soccer. It's also the exact reason why popular sports are popular in this country (including NASCAR; yes, I can link the popularity of NASCAR to the non-popularity of soccer in this country). But, you'll have to organize it to get the answers Leo. ;)

The popularity of NASCAR is easy to figure out.  The fans equate their IQ to the driver's number....

The best thing about that joke is "They don't know they should be offended!"
