Sounders Rule!

Today I got to see the Sounders play an open cup semifinal match versus Huston. We thought we had reserved second row seats, but get there and find out it's general admission seating. Jason and I were pretty pissed until we found our seats: front row, just to the right of the net. We were literally ten feet from the action.

33rd minute: Houston scores.

For most of the rest of the game, Sounders weren't looking great. They maintained possession for much of the game, and took a bunch of shots, but didn't score until...

88th Minute (of 90): sounders score, tying the game. Overtime!

4th minute of OT. Sounders score again to take the lead!

They manage to hold onto their lead and win the game.

To top it all off, the crowd we crazy! My favorite was whenever the opposing goalie took a goal kick, everyone yelled "You suck, asshole!" that was the one cheer that took off.

Anyway, crazy fun! Go sounders!
