Clint Dempsey, typically more stoic and focused than Jason Bourne, even cracked a smile as he said hello to his new home fans.
He also sounded just a bit hoarse, possible the tax of a hectic past couple of days, jetting in from overseas to join Major League Soccer, the league’s most high profile signing since David Beckham joined in 2007.
Before you watch the video below, take some time to enjoy the giant Demsey tifo (pictured). Generally speaking, I’d say the whole “Keep calm” thing has run its course. But cheers to the Sounders faithful for getting this bad boy up stitched together so quickly.
Here is his official unveiling and short speech from Saturday.
