This Week in Sounders Gifs: The Lamarvelous Oba show (Animated)

New, comments

Lamar Neagle's recent surge is rewarded as he tallied two first half goals as the Seattle Sounders defeat Colorado Rapids 3-1 at Dick's Sporting Goods Park. While Neagle scored the eventual game winner, Obafemi Martins sealed the victory in the second half with a sure Goal of the Week winner and likely a Goal of the Year candidate.

No one will blame if you just watch this forever and ever.

LAMARVELOUS! Lamar Neagle with a beautiful far post curler:

Lamar's goal was wonderful but the counter attack that preceded it may be just as good (gif sped up). Mears to Neagle to Oba to Clint to Neagle in just a matter of seconds:

Stefan Frei was huge in the first half and this save was massive:

Neagle strikes again! He gives to Marco Pappa and Pappa gives it right back with a nice ball in:

Tyrone Mears SWING AND A MISS!:

Marcelo Sarvas is kind of a big jerk. This is me using non-earmuffs SFW language. First he kicks the ball at Clint Dempsey's head seemingly on purpose:

And then he went ahead and stomped on Clint's personal area:

I mean double-u-tee-eff:

Dempsey shakes it off and does a little more shaking, Deuce style:

Clint Irwin makes a nice save on this point blank chance by Clint Dempsey:

A nice 12-pass buildup just before half almost results in either a Clint goal or Neagle's hat trick:
