12 hours until kickoff
12 hours until opportunity
12 hours until Seattle erupts
12 hours until you will hear us
12 hours until we rise up
12 hours until I stand proudly in my place
12 hours until with family and friends I will watch as the team that represents my region attempts to declare the this Puget Sound, this people, these Sounders are the best in America, if just for this one year.
12 hours until the Columbus Crew in their black kits with yellow stripes will be stunned into silence. Waiting for this road trip to end.
12 hours, and 90 minutes, until I witness live, in person a trophy hoisted on high with 30,000+ of my greatest friends.
