Seattle Light Rail to the Sounders FC

The Sounders FC tied today with the Chicago Fire 0-0 in a hard fought battle on the XBOX Pitch. It was a fun game to watch, just wish the Sounders would have come away with the win.

And in other news, I rode the new light rail to the game. It cost $4.50 for a round trip ticket from Tukwila to the Stadium Station. Which was so much better than me having to drive into downtown Seattle, fight the traffic and construction, and try to find a place to park.

Here's more about the light rail, a map of where it runs, as well as a video for those of you who don't know what a light rail system is:

Central Link opened July 18, 2009 from downtown Seattle to Tukwila. A temporary bus shuttle will connect light rail passengers from Tukwila Internation Blvd Station to Sea Tac Airport. By December 2009, Link will extend directly to the SeaTac/Airport station, replacing the shuttle.
