When was the last time.....?/Setting Goals vs Managing Expectations

As Sounders faithful we have had very high expectations since the team won its first three matches in the MLS era. Over time the team has been among the league’s very best and yet I would argue it has not met our expectations. Until now, perhaps.

The team is top of the table by seven points and leads the West by ten. We are in the semifinals of the (our) US Open Cup. We again lead the league in attendance. And the team is playing some very attractive soccer.

When was the last time a team won the US Open Cup, the Supporters Shield and MLS Cup in the same season? Is this a reasonable goal for the 2014 Sounders? Although we have made the playoffs every year we have been playoff underachievers but this year?
