Inaugural Season? We Got Silverware!!!!!! Seattle are the US Open Cup Champs!

Also, brilliance from the guys at

But you didn't win this one

I am numb. But in a good way. When I saw the injury list, I truly doubted that my boys could do this, especially given that I'm not having a great week and it kind of felt like this game would be a continuation.

Oh, me of little faith. Please forgive me.

Tyson Wahl and Patrick Ianni filled in admirably at central defense. Kasey Kelley picked up the pieces as needed. My favorite Sounder James Riley was everywhere getting the job done. Leo Gonzalez proved he was the missing piece.

Pete Vagenas, Osvaldo Alonso, Steve Zakuani, Sebastien Le Toux, Roger Levesque, Freddie Ljungberg and Fredy Montero...

Well, what the hell can you say about a team that can fill in this well to make injuries and suspensions irrelevant?

Bring this to the rest of the season, boys, and we'll see you in the playoffs.

P.S. Josh Wicks? Thanks for being the dick we all knew you were.

Oh, and last thing?
