Just how many write-in votes Seattle Sounders and U.S. national team midfielder/right back Brad Evans got exactly for the King County sheriff election on Tuesday is hard to say. He definitely got one, from Sounders podcaster Aaron Campeau, who tweeted out his picture.
Even if John Urquhart ran unopposed, the unofficial Evans campaign, which seemed to lack exposure, traction and, erm, campaigning, won something in the end.
If the Sounders beat the Portland Timbers tonight and advance to the Western Conference finals, Urquhart will let Evans be sheriff for a day. Or so he said in his own tweet, holding up a Sounders scarf.
Evans, in turn, re-tweeted Urquhart’s tweet with the post-script “this is happening!”
So if the Sounders drag out a win from their 2-1 aggregate deficit on Thursday night, be sure not to spit, litter or urinate in public around Brad Evans on Friday.
