About a week ago I blogged about how I wanted everyone to ditch the three available choices for the new MLS soccer team comming to Seattle and I also sent out an email to a bunch of people I knew. Today they announced the new team name and as it turns out the write-in worked! 14500 people voted on line with 50% using the write-in choice and 49% of those write-ins had Sounders as part of the name. The new name is Seattle Sounders FC (where FC stands for Football Club).
Normally a write-in canidate will be less than 20%. Nice work y’all.
Thanks again to everyone that voted for the Sounders. Go Sounders FC!
