If you have an outlet, Clint Dempsey was ready to promote on Monday. The Seattle Sounder was in New York on Monday, put front in center as Major League Soccer had him do the media rounds.

Okay, maybe he didn’t get asked that last question, but I wouldn’t be shocked if he was. I’d also bet money on somebody wondering whether he knows “that Alex Morgan.”
