Seattle, WA - The Seattle Sounders have announced a partnership with presidential candidate Bernie Sanders ahead of the politicians visit to Safeco Field, today.
The Sounders stated that they have started their "Feel the BERN" sponsorship with a tie in to their goalpost flame cannons. Every time the Sounders score a goal and fire up the flame cannons, they will donate $10,000 to Mr. Sanders campaign.
"We acknowledge that we are a progressive club with a progressive identity," stated Seattle Sounders public relations officer Lauren Pettygrove. "We plan on donating a lot of money and watching a lot of goals go in as we move towards a new tomorrow."
Reportedly, the Sounders felt very comfortable with this new alliance due to the fact that both Mr Sanders and the Sounders are expected to do well, win a few battles, and attract a few million people over the next six months until they ultimately collapse in November after a futile campaign.
