A fun time to follow my football clubs

By Mark on 20210211 — 1 min read

I choose a foot­ball club to follow in each big league during my second US Army tour in Europe. I was living in Turkey and passed Galatasaray on my way into my Istanbul haunts. Check.

My first signif­i­cant Euro­pean club match expe­ri­ence had come while, visiting the Italian Alpini Para­cadutisti. Juventus was playing Hamburg. But I picked my local team to follow, Real Vicenza V.S. In a nod to my histor­ical lineage, I decided to follow Swansea City in Wales.

More than a decade later, our Seattle Sounders FC made it to MLS and began revealing their greatness.

Now, two of SSFC’s very best have landed in two of the clubs I selected so many years ago. Following those teams will be so much fun. And bonus; the two American’s from SSFC are both speed demons too. Fun!

side note: I cannot wait for pandemic restric­tions to lift so I can attend matches of my new local team, Grand Rapids FC of the USL second league.
