The name of the Seattle team in the newly-formed National Women's Soccer League was announced today: Seattle Reign FC. I'm actually not a big fan of the name. I tend to dislike singular nouns as team nicknames: Storm, Thunder, Galaxy, etc. Yuck. However, the team crest is fantastic. And I'm definitely excited that Seattle will have a women's professional team. Remember, the Sounders Women are a semi-professional team. Seattle Reign FC's chief rival will be Portalnd Thorns FC. Hopefully, the top U.S. Women players will be joining the league. I assume the Reign will be playing home matches at Starfire, but nothing has been announced yet. It would definitely be cool if Seattle could play Portland in a match at CenturyLink. So while I'll probably never love the name Seattle Reign FC, I will still be a proud supporter. Let's Go, Reign FC!
