Woo-Hoo! Champions

We went to a Seattle Sounders FC (soccer) game tonight.
It was not a regular season game, and it was not a playoff game.
It was the Open Cup Championship Game for the Lamar Hunt Cup.

Seattle Sounders - Open Cup Champions 2010

U.S. OPEN CUP: America’s oldest soccer trophy — first awarded in 1916 — will go to a Major League Soccer club for the 14th time in 15 years.

Last year, in their first year as an MLS team, the Seattle Sounders won the cup.

This year the Sounders played the Columbus Crew. It was a fast-paced game.
The Columbus Crew scored first on a break by an unmarked player. Seattle answered back, and then added another goal in the second half. Then it was time to hold on. Highlights

The referees really seemed to be on the Crew’s side. But isn’t that always the way it feels. Regardless, the pace of the game was frenetic and the crowd was wild. 31,311 folks in attendence. What a fun way to spend an evening.

If only I could play with such intensity, skill and energy.
