Soccer Social


Huzzah! It is Wednesday and Soccer Social is back to catch you up on soccer news and what your favorite athletes have been posting on social media. This week, Left Foot Studios welcomed its newest member. The Sounders meet Master Chief while the Seattle Reign get legislative. Robbie Keane is lurking the halls of the Stub Hub Center and more...

A huge congratulations goes out to Brek Shea and his girlfriend Carling on the birth of their baby girl Phoenix!

DC United spent a night hanging out with Frank Underwood, aka Kevin Spacey. DC United could have used some Frank Underwood magic to get their stadium deal done about ten years sooner.

Also in stadium news, LAFC and KickTV released the first artist renderings of their stadium plans. Ok, I like.

The Seattle Sounders are further teaming up with Xbox to help launch Halo 5. Rumor has it the Master Chief will be at the game this weekend. Lets just hope Clint Dempsey has to play the whole game in a Master Chief costume. Watching Master Chief blast a goal upper 90 would be too much for a hardcore Seattle gamer.

Get ready to see someone new on the pitch this Sunday. #Halo5SFC

Finally, Dax McCarty and his dog Koji are prepping for the coming colder months. I can't really tell how Koji feels about this new arrangement.

When it's Fall but @kojithefrenchie isn't about that cold weather life. 🐶🍂
