Going inside the 'Battle of Cascadia': A mini-documentary from Copa90

New, 10 comments

You may remember that Copa90 did a feature on the Sounders and Seattle soccer last year. Well, they came back to feature our rivalry with the Portland Timbers.

The last time the Seattle Sounders visited the Portland Timbers will likely be preferred forgotten by most of us. But as bad as the result may have been -- and this video certainly shares that -- we must tip our hat to the folks at Copa90 who have put together another wonderful mini-documentary about soccer in the Pacific Northwest.

Lest you be inclined to skip this one on the assumption that it's overly focused on the Timbers Army, take heart in knowing that Seattle gets our due here, too. Among those interviewed are former Sounders players Roger Levesque and Taylor Graham; club legend Alan Hinton; ECS President Greg Mockos; and S2 in-stadium announcer Hugo Garcia.

Yes, there's a lot of Timbers Army stuff you'll need to wade through, but it really is a worthwhile watch. And, heck, maybe it helps inject some more life into what is already the best rivalry in MLS.
