Vinicius Vini Oliveira
While the headline event this past Sunday was (of course) the Superbowl, Seattle fans of the other football tuned in to the post-bowl Sounders FC SuperSearch to watch ten talented soccer players compete for the final roster position in the Seattle Sounders FC.
The Sounders FC is the 15th Major League Soccer team, and has already sold more season tickets than any other MLS team in the league's history. (They even have a marching band... the only MLS team that does.)
But back to the SuperSearch!
The big winner at the end of the evening was Vinicius 'Vini' Oliveira, who had a strong fan presence at the televised finals. He joins Swedish dreamboat (and Calvin Klein model) Freddie Ljungberg on the Sounders FC roster.
As my friends and I watched the SuperSearch finals, we were reminded how incredibly hot the players are... with Vini being no exception to that rule. (Okay, okay... and that football is an incredibly fast-paced and fun game.) We're looking into season tickets now, so maybe we'll see you alongside the pitch!
