Seahawks QB Russell Wilson joins ownership group of Seattle Sounders FC
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson isn’t just an American football fan. He showed this when he and his wife Ciara took part ownership of the Seattle Sounders FC. This was announced today in a press release. Wilson also commented on the purchase.
“We are fired up about the Seattle Sounders because it’s our home. It’s the place we get to raise our kids and the place we are forever connected to, we want to have the world’s best soccer players play here in Seattle and win championships! As we do that, we also want to have a major impact on our community through one of the world’s best sports by teaching and demonstrating a healthy lifestyle, winning habits, sportsmanship and ultimately a Why Not You Attitude. This is just the beginning of what we plan to do together in the world of sports and entertainment.” Said Wilson and Ciara.
This isn’t exactly groundbreaking news. Wilson has always been a fan of multiple sports, as he was drafted into the MLB by the New York Yankees.
As for the people who will inevitably accuse Wilson of not concentrating hard enough on the game, this is no cause for concern. The former Wisconsin Badger is a fierce competitor and always has been. After receiving a huge extension, you can be sure Wilson’s primary concern is getting his team back into the playoffs. While the roster doesn’t look particularly strong, you can never count out Russell Wilson and head coach Pete Carroll.
