I thought this was a twitter hoax at first, but a variety of outlets are reporting that Clint Dempsey will sign with the Sounders after playing the last 6 years in the EPL.
Thoughts? Seemed like he'd have a few more EPL worthy years in him. On the other hand, as a Seattle native, I'm excited to watch him and Eddie Johnson play together.
The Sounders already average 40k+ per match. Seeing an American soccer team draw more than 50k a game would be impressive.
