Sounders FC has a new super fan: Mina Kimes.
Kimes, an NFL analyst with ESPN and a regular on hit programs like Around the Horn and Highly Questionable, is an outspoken fan for both the Seahawks and Mariners. Following a chat with ESPN analyst Taylor Twellman about the MLS is Back Tournament on her podcast “ESPN Daily,” she decided to jump on the Rave Green bandwagon.
MLS is Back! The terrific @TaylorTwellman joined us on ESPN Daily to talk about the many challenges, previewed the tourney, and convinced me to bandwagon the Sounders.— Mina Kimes (@minakimes) July 8, 2020
