I have been waiting a long time for this day.
This day right here.
The day when I can celebrate without caveat.
When my underdog team finally becomes top dog.
I've been rooting for Seattle's professional sports teams since 1995 (at the tender age of four)
This is the first time it has all come together.
I'll treasure this moment, this day, forever.
But tomorrow I'll be greedy, like an online shopper buying for the heck of it.
So if you wouldn't mind, Sounders, could pick up an MLS Cup this season?
Keep this thing going? Even a Supporter's Shield would be lovely. You too, Reign.
And NHL, NBA; Have you seen what this town can look like, in the throws of passion?
And Seahawks, I expect you back in the big game next year.
Mariners... A winning record would be super. Baby steps.
This is the first step. This is the leak in the dam. The rest is coming.
It's a new age for Seattle. And it is going to be a fun ride for all of us swept along in the flow.
This will probably be the last time the Seahawks come up in this space for quite some time, but the reach of their accomplishment seeps into all of Seattle's many pores.
Where in the world is Freddy Adu? In England with Championship side Blackpool.
In the wake of San Jose's rebranding (a massive improvement if I do say so), designer Mark Willis sets his sights on reforming the Columbus Crew's look, to marvelous results. His 4-square result would be one of the best crests in MLS.
For once, we can sing Queen songs self reverentially. Good times.
