US Open Cup Final - Sounders v Fire - Gamethread

New, comments

It is easy to get the sense that Tuesday night's US Open Cup Final is an important match for the Seattle Sounders. If you follow their various social media platforms you've been flooded with tweets, Facebook posts, contests, videos and more. On the radio they started purchasing advertising weeks ago. The Supporters Groups have swelled to a state of excitement that cannot be contained. The march to the match will be massive and led by Cups. Here, we've gone a bit nuts with coverage as well with 6 posts in the last 3 days, not to mention other news, fanshots, etc.

At some point it comes down to the game - to the men taking the field for the Chicago Fire, or those wearing the Rave Green of the Sounders this is their opportunity for silverware. For the hundred or so traveling Fire fans tonight is their opportunity to return to glory of years past. For the tens of thousands in the greens and blues this is another chapter in a history that is both short and long.

History will be made in the Pews of Royal Brougham Park. Ideally it will be a history with a little Northwest flavor in it.

The game is on FoxSoccer (national) and 97.3FM with Arlo White on the call at 7:00 PM
