Apropos of nothing but my willingness to plug America's domestic soccer league and Maine soccer players done good, Falmouth High graduate Roger Levesque has signed a contract with the Seattle Sounders FC of Major League Soccer (MLS).
Levesque, who was an All-American twice during his stint at Stanford University, was drafted by an MLS team in 2003, but had played for the Seattle team in the second division from 2004 to 2008.
The Sounders begin their inaugural season (and MLS's thirteenth season) tonight against the New York Red Bulls at 9p. The game will be televised on ESPN2.
