A crisp wind blows down Occidental Avenue and the "I know I am, I'm sure I am" Sounders FC Fan welcomes the onset of fall. His compulsive habit of wearing a Sounders FC scarf to the office all week is now sensible behavior, his overwhelming urge to simultaneously sport both the neon green home kit and the electric yellow friendly kit is now customary Northwest layering, and the Halloween spirit stirs his craving for the original and outrageous.
One of those fans is Ryan Zimmer, aka Iron Fan. The first year Sounders FC season ticket holder caught the costume bug last Saturday at Sounders vs. Toronto, and, in true Hollywood fashion, stopped by the PEMCO photo booth to make a lasting impression with his new Sounders FC Iron Man mask. "It's the unveiling of a new match day tradition" he says.

If you want to make sure your over-the-top fall fandom doesn't go unnoticed either, visit Brad, Peter, and I outside the main entrance at Qwest for your free NW Profiles souvenir fan photo. We'll be there next with the WALLY1 van on October 15 as the Sounders welcome Chivas USA.
Or, if your soccer fever can't wait that long, PEMCO will be sponsoring a free lunchtime indoor pick-up game at the home training center of Sounders FC, Starfire Sports, at 12:00 p.m. October 5. See you on the pitch!
