It was a night of two games.
The Cascade Shale took the pitch, and came out swinging. From the whistle, the Sounders went on the offensive, but throughout the first half, something seemed off. They won the duels, but rattled shots off the boards, something wasn’t right. Energy seemed almost like it was waning fast, […]
It’s not often I come home from a Sounders game and say to my wife “Well, I want those two hours back.” Last night was such a night.
A resounding, crushing defeat from a club that had never before posed a threat, delivered from On High with smiting force upon the Seattle Sounders. That’s […]
Seattle Sounders rocked the Community Shield against Jaguares from Mexico.
The first half ran fairly slow. There was a lot of action up and down the field, resulting in no gains for either side. That said, the first half was a great showing for two of our newest members: Michael Gspurning, and Adam Johannson. Our […]
To come back today would be incredible. We all know it can happen, we’ve seen the statistics. But the Sounders face a massive roadblock. The team has fallen into a horrible rut. And that rut goes by the name of Riley. Wait, I’ll go back. That Rut goes by the name of Defense. Wait, I’ll […]
Three Open Cup wins in a row! What a fantatic Tuesday evening!
Props to Freedy for keeping a cool head and tapping in the game winner. However, I have to say that the goal Oswaldo Alonso put in was ne of the more masterful plays I’ve seen since I started attending Sounders matches. The way […]
A 2-2 tie in Guatemala last night puts the Seattle Sounders into the CONCACAF Quarter Finals. But do they deserve to go forward? As much as I love to watch them play, and as much as I want for them to win everything and come home with Cup after Cup…
No. No, they don’t deserve […]
Football/Soccer expression referring to an amazing o improbable goal.
Why do I start off with that term? The Seattle Sounders vs FC Dallas game _almost_ had one. A beautiful series of passes resulted in Freddy Montero (someone I’m very rarely in favor of) attempting an astounding Bicycle Kick (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bicycle_kick). HIs form was dead […]
He’s a mother!@#$ing wall!
That’s right. Kasey Keller is the news of the moment. He’s doing a signing this weekend (The first one of the Season!), down in Federal Way.
“But Paul, where can I go to be part of this amazing event?!?”, you might ask.
Well, I’m feeling nice, so I’ll tell you. Just […]
Big weekend for Sounders fans. Tomorrow (Saturday) promises to be a great game as the Sounders take on the Columbus Crew. The Crew, by the way, are one of the only teams to have their goal keeper have a goal to his credit. He scored on Toronto FC in the final minute of a game […]
