This weekend’s MLS Cup match between the Seattle Sounders FC and Toronto FC is almost here, and GeekWire readers are getting fired up.
When we put out the call for the Geekiest Sounders Fan, we knew that Sounders fans would not disappoint. Raps, haikus, cheers, artwork, and photos show that there are some passionate Sounders geeks out there.
Mr. Sounder, the legendary Sounders defender Zach Scott, has been busy reviewing submissions and has narrowed it down to these five finalists below. Zach will announce the winner at tonight’s Playbook event at The Ninety in Pioneer Square, which features a fireside chat with Seattle Storm CEO and General Manager Alisha Valavanis. Tickets are available here.
Enjoy, and Go Sounders!

I've been the #GeekiestSoundersFan since high school. I would get two carloads of friends to go to cheer on the Sounders at the Kingdome. It was the NASL and now coach Brian Schmetzer played under the coaching of Alan Hinton. @slalomseattle @geekwire #Ilovethesounders #faithfulfan #fanforlife Pictures of my car in 1982, and at a Sounders game in the Kingdome. We had won the Western Conference Cup and the players had the 🏆 to show to the fans!
Guess I’m a bit of a #sounders geek because I take my scarf with me all over the world including 6 continents and about 35 countries. Gotta support the boys everywhere! #GeekiestSoundersFan @SlalomSeattle @geekwire pic.twitter.com/UEQGOwa7vN
