Fan Pens Comedic Open Letter To Deandre Yedlin

An open letter from a fan to Seattle Sounder Deandre Yedlin hits right chords.

Deandre Yedlin left for Brazil he left with twitter followers in the 10’s of thousands. A short World Cup stint and 3 months later he has surpassed a quarter of a million fans on twitter(@yedliny). The Seattle Times published  a piece featuring the challenges the young superstar now faces .

Last week it started over at Sounder at Heart with “Dear Deandre” . A truly warming letter to the youngster, letting him know he will always be a Sounder, but it would be best for him to go [overseas].

It continues today as twitter user @carlisle , Andre Floyd,  posted an “Open Letter To Deandre Yedlin” on his blog $.02 for what it’s worth. Coming not from a Sounders fan but a lover of the beautiful game.

It begins,

“Sorry, I’m not used to writing letters — especially to people I don’t know. Except for that prison pen pal program I had in middle school which, in hindsight, WAS THE WORST IDEA ANYONE HAS EVER HAD EVER”

It is a comedic take on a real issue the player faces. Stay home and be close to family or step into the unknown and reach a limitless potential.

It’s a supply versus demand thing and if you were cocaine you’d go for $50k per kilo

Of what will surely be only one of the many to follow, I would encourage you to read the full letter  from Andre Floyd
