23 Feb -- Seattle Sounders FC vs Real Salt Lake, Tucson AZ

I took Charlie to a MLS friendly in Tucson.  It was a tournament called the Desert Diamond Cup.  The Seattle Sounders FC defeated Real Salt Lake 1-0 in the championship match.

 There were over 4,500 people there, but still enough room to check out lots of different views.

 The Red Bull Air Force delivered the official game ball.  Since it is Red Bull, they didn't just sky dive in...they did a flip just over the crowd just before landing.  What a way to start the game!


Almost a fist bump from Eddie Johnson, who also plays on the US Men's National Team.

 Charlie desperately tried to get a fist bump from one of the players.

 Finally!  Yordany Alvarez from the Real Salt Lake team hooked him up.

 He even posed for a quick pic.

 There was lots to tell Anna.

On the walk back to the car, Charlie said, "I'm going to take my jacket off so you can take a picture of me in my jersey."
