I have no idea why 23 million people have watched the original honey badger thing.  And I don’t know who originally called Alonzo the honey badger, but, hey, if the shoe fits…

Sounders FC 2, Chicago Fire 0

Don't Fear the Reaper

Last week’s U.S. Open Cup Final was another great day to be a Sounders supporter.  We were still in the pub when this went up, but we were standing in an unfamiliar location, just to the left of the tifo, and wouldn’t have been able to see it anyway, other than on the big screen.  The view was disorienting from the corner, a strange curvature of the earth perspective, with play in the opposite half strangely distant.  Luckily for us both goals were in the Brougham end.

Vancouver Whitecaps 1, Sounders FC 3

Mauro Rosales

The Sounders beat the Whitecaps 3:1 last week in Vancouver to claim the Cascadia Cup.  The riot in the tifo is a nod to the Stanley Cup riots earlier in the year.  The image is, of course, injured crowd favorite Mauro Rosales.  It was a great game to watch.  The Whitecaps, again looking a lot better than their league standing suggests, went ahead in the 22nd minute.  I’m still not sure how that wasn’t offside.  They managed to stay in front for just 11 minutes.

Sounders FC 4, Colorado Rapids 3

Levesque, again?

It’s been an interesting week to be a Sounders supporter.  First an excellent 4:3 win against the Colorado Rapids on Saturday that involved the Sounders coming back from being a goal down, twice – seems like a pattern.  In this case it took the Rapids slightly less than a minute to score.  But I wasn’t worried.  The Sounders have been in such great form lately, aside, of course, from the poor defending that results in the team going behind, typically against the run of play, in the first place.

Portland Timbers 2, Seattle Sounders 3

The King of Clubs: Ironic Observation at its Best

The tifo shown above rose without a hitch, apparently with assistance from the grounds staff.  And really from then on it was all downhill for the Timbers.  Despite going ahead twice, once from an own goal and then from a deflection (also an own goal technically), Portland were simply outplayed and outclassed, and unable to maintain either lead for more than a few minutes.  Two great goals from Montero, and one via the penalty spot from Alonzo.  It was a great day to be a Sounders supporter.  The highlights from the game are below.
