Tonight is Brian Schmetzer's 400th match as head coach of the Seattle Sounders. Across 2 different eras, the stats are impressive: over 200 wins, 2 USL regular season championships, 2 USL League championships, 2 MLS Cup championships, 4 Cascadia Cup championships. But Schmetz's contribution to the club is much deeper than the on-field accomplishments, he's been part of the fabric of the club since he signed with the club as a player in 1980. His commitment to the club, love for the city and its people, and passion for the relationship between the club and fans show that he is more than a head coach, he is our steward. We'll proudly sing for Schmetz for hundreds more (and hopefully a few more championships), but his position in our club's history is secure:
We're the Seattle Freakin' Sounders, we are Brian Schmetzer's Rave Green Army.
