This Week in (Cascadia) Gifs: Seattle was on fire indeed (animated)

New, 26 comments

If "There's No Place Like Home" then I am truly sorry we left yours in a shamble. The Seattle Sounders FC took all three points by defeating Portland Timbers 4-2 in another Cascadia Classic (tm). The win also pushes Seattle back into first in the West and Supporter Shield standings. The takeaway here is Obafemi Martins is some sort of damned wizard.

Obafemi Martins is a wizard of some kind. A damned wizard!

Brad Evans runs right past Designated Player Center Back Liam Ridgewell and squares a beauty into Obafemi Martins for goal number one:

The counter-attack was on point. Watch as Clint Dempsey makes a lung-busting 80 yard sprint to get in as Oba picks him out perfectly:

Michael Harrington and his pony could not catch up to the Deuce train:
