Sounders’ Alex Morgan and Servando Carrasco are a perfect soccer match
In a short period of time, they have become Seattle’s first couple of soccer. For the first time since their college days at California, Morgan and Carrasco are playing in the same city.
UKWILA — After the Women’s World Cup, after Alex Morgan had scored the kind of goals at the kind of moments that lift a person’s Q rating from tepid to white hot, she and her boyfriend, Servando Carrasco, had a short conversation about how the events in her life could change their lives.
At 22, Morgan was the youngest player on the United States women’s team and the breakout star of the 2011 World Cup. Coming off the bench, she scored the clinching goal in a 3-1 semifinal win over France, then scored the first goal and assisted on Abby Wambach’s goal in the championship loss to Japan.
When she got home, Morgan was invited to talk shows. She attended galas, threw out the first pitch at a Kansas City Royals game. And she posed in this year’s Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. Life was happening quickly.
"We talked about the attention I was getting and the interviews he was having to do about me, which I can understand would get frustrating," Morgan said Wednesday night before a Sounders Women’s practice. "We had that one conversation and ever since then, it’s been fine.
"We’re still the same people, heart and soul. We do the same things, have the same personalities, no matter what the media thinks of me or him. I don’t think our lives have changed at all. We’re still a couple of individuals who are trying to make our mark on soccer."

Love of Game, Not Money

gkswagfordays:

I am sure that like me, most of you wondered how the Sounders Women could possibly afford the star power that they have signed for this season. I wondered how the new ownership could possibly throw that much money at the few players with big names, and still afford to field an entire high quality team. I wondered how the heck they enticed the great Hope Solo to come play for us, before she and her teammates run off to win the gold in the Olympics. If you look at the team that they have signed, almost every one of them has ties to the Pacific Northwest. Sydney Leroux is from Surrey, British Columbia; Hope is from Richland, Washington; Alex Morgan is dating Servando Carrasco from the Seattle Sounders FC; Megan Rapinoe played for the University of Portland; Veronica Perez is a UW Husky; Megan Manthey is from Ferndale, Washington; Kate Deines is from Issaquah, Washington; Lyndsey Elston was a Husky; and Keelin Winters went to the University of Portland. Seven of those players have worn the USA jersey, Veronica plays on the Mexican National team. Holy cow! That’s some serious soccer, right there.

It’s the local ties, not the money. I was shocked, and slightly appalled that these women have signed one year “contracts” which I’m told is the normal length of contracts in the W-League, for $0 dollars. That’s right, ZERO, nada, zip, nothin! The W-League is amateur in nature. That means that the current college girls on the roster would lose their eligibility to play if the Pros were paid. So, my fellow Sounder fans, these women are putting their passion for top quality play in front of their need to make a living.

How can you not love them? HOW?

It’s official: Sounders Sign Alex Morgan.

Seattle Sounders Women have signed US Women’s National Team forward Alex Morgan pending official USSF/CSA approval, the team announced today.
“Alex is a world class player who has proven herself well beyond her 22 years.  Her breakout World Cup performance sets the stage for what will be an exciting Sounders Women’s Season.” said Sounders Women General Manager Amy Carnell.
Morgan, 22, has 32 appearances and 16 goals for the US Women’s National Team since making her debut in 2010. The Diamond Bar, CA, native was the youngest player on the team that competed in the 2011 FIFA World Cup.  She made an impact coming on as a substitute, however, scoring goals in the semifinal and final. 
“I am excited to play in a city that is so passionate about soccer. The Sounders have beenone of if not the best fan support in MLS. I can only imagine how Seattle fans would respond to having a full professional women’s team in the future.”

Alex Morgan Rumored To Be Sounders Women's Next Big Signing

thrace-:

Alex Morgan is rumored to be the next big-name signing by the Sounders Women, sources close to the situation have indicated to Sounder at Heart. Her signing could be announced next week.

The signing would make a lot of sense, even though Morgan was listed as playing in the WPSL in a recent press release. Morgan’s WPS team, the Western New York Flash, have joined the WPSL, but there now appears to be no mention of Morgan on their website. Further evidence that would point to Morgan’s joining the Sounders is that she’s currently dating Seattle Sounders FC midfielder Servando Carrasco

The trio is expected to suit up about eight times for the Sounders. They will likely play four regular-season home matches, one away match and three exhibition games. The season-opener is currently scheduled for May 20 at Starfire Sports Complex. The team is still trying to rearrange parts of its schedule to help accomodate these players’ international duties, as well as avoid some conflicts with Sounders FC. Those changes are expected to be finalized next week.


Alex’s boyfriend, Servando Carrasco, along with the Seattle Sounders, take a picture by a billboard of Alex outside of Sports Authority in L.A. So cute :)
