About that soccer game, the Sounders played the San Jose Earthquakes and were heavily favored to win. Instead, the two teams battled to a 1-1 tie. The game was actually a little frustrating for Sounders fans. They outplayed San Jose, but were tied 0-0 at the half.During the intermission, Théo and I hustled down to the concessions to get cheeseburgers, garlic fries, and root beer (more American training), returning to our seats in time to see Seattle score a goal in the first minute of the second half (during the only time during the whole match that we were seated). They completely controlled the play after that, up until San Jose scored 20 minutes later on a fairly cheap goal. Despite a plethora of chances and shots, the Sounders could not regain the lead.
On Théo’s training, I believe he videotaped the playing of the American national anthem before the match began.
