I got another opportunity to shoot the Seattle Sounders a few days ago thanks to a good friend. This was the first match of the MLS season against the LA Galaxy and was broadcast on ESPN. Looking at the forecast a day or two before the match I kept seeing 100% chance of rain. For the first time in history the weather man was right....it rained almost the whole match! Although I was wet and cold I had a great time and knew that the rain would add an extra bit to the photos. I also got another opportunity to hang out and talk with my good buddy David Beckham. It was nice to reconnect since the last time we saw each other. He asked me if I was trying to grow out my hair to look like his and I politely told him, "no, this season I'm going with the Fredy Montero look." Unfortunately the match didn't go the way that the Sounders had hoped as they were defeated 1-0. Hopefully the next time I'm out there they will win and i'll stay dry!
