As Minnesota United welcomed the Seattle Sounders on Saturday night in a match crucial to both teams' postseason hopes, fans in the Loons' freshly minted Wonderwall supporters end reminded Sounders fans that not all of Seattle's musical history is sweet.
The pregame tifo depicted two of the cities' biggest musical icons, Seattle's Jimi Hendrix and Minneapolis' Prince, with quotes from each on their respective hometowns.
