Built for Man of the Month: Brad Evans
Posted: Nov 22 2011
We’ve cheered from the stands for Brad Evans since Seattle Sounders FC’s inaugural season in 2009. Over the past three years, Brad and his team have successfully turned the conventionally composed set of Seattle city-dwellers into truly raucous futbol fans. As midfielder, Brad has helped his team bring home three consecutive U.S. Open Cup victories, giving Seattleites a new reason to paint their faces green and brave the rain on a soggy spring day.
Off the field, he stays true to the Sounders mission statement by focusing on his community. On December 3rd, Brad will be working with the Community Health Plan of Washington on their Third Annual Healthy Holidays Event. You and the kiddies can enjoy free food, pictures with Santa, live music, and of course, a meet and greet with Brad; while learning about the basic health care services provided by the Community Health Plan.

WHY DO YOU LOVE FASHION? Let’s be honest, unless there’s a riveting headline on the front of GQ, you’re getting the magazine to look at the photos. I’ve always been a visual person and view most everything visually. So when I see my wife, friends, family, or strangers I always take note what they have on.
