I will be, at some point; this was an interesting game. The Fire were very good. The tactics were interesting. Adjustments were made. Players did things we didn't thin they could. I am very glad that I TIVO'd it. It will be fantastic to watch later. Fredy Montero's goal that made all of CenturyLink Field breathe just that little bit easier was a brilliant bit of goal poaching. Osvaldo Alonso's stoppage-time stunner was absolutely breathtaking. This game was a heart-stopper and at several points it looked as though the Sounders might be in some pretty serious trouble. They never were though. Which is a pretty huge plus.
But tonight took everything out of me. The ECS overlords worked me to the bone. I have no voice left. I have very little brain left, because I probably burned three times as many calories tonight as I've taken in over the past few days. All I know is, the Seattle Sounders are the US Open Cup champions for the third straight year. Which is totally ridiculous. It also means the Sounders will once again qualify for the CONCACAF Champions League.
This is amazing you guys. Just enjoy it. This city deserves more champions. The Sounders are doing their best to make up for everyone else.

The Sounders look to win a third straight US Open Cup tonight at CenturyLink Field and the only thing standing in their way is the Chicago Fire, near the bottom of the MLS Eastern conference. Unfortunately for Seattle, the standings don't tell the whole story; this is a hugely improved Chicago Fire team and holding onto the cup is going to be a major challenge.
