As I'm sure you've read elsewhere, it's time to celebrate. Or: WOOHOO! The Sounders finally got a year-end award.
(Yes, it happened to be the one where only Sounders were nominated, but still. An award. The FC Dallas spambots did NOT figure out a way to give it to Jeff Cunningham.) Fredy Montero took "Newcomer of the Year" over Freddie Ljungberg and Kasey Keller.
Pretty sure this is okay, because Freddie has tons of money, not to mention good-looking women falling all over him, and I'm fairly certain that Kasey could beat Fredy up. So on a cosmic scale, it seems to balance out. Congrats, Fredy!
(And if you see Kasey coming toward you? Well, I'm pretty sure you can outrun him.)
(P.S. You do know that they don't give out awards like this in Europe, right?)
