Sounders want help finding fans 'posterized' by Stefan Frei save

New, 11 comments

It was one of the best saves of all-time.

We all remember how incredible of a save that Stefan Frei made in MLS Cup Final against Toronto was in the second half of extra time. Now, the Sounders are looking for help to find the people that were behind the goal during that save.

Sheldon later followed up to say that two of those people had stepped forward, presumably for something they’re working up on SoundersFC.com.

That save will go down as arguably one of the greatest saves in MLS Cup history if it already hasn’t. It’s a save that has people that don’t really follow the Sounders — or soccer in general — asking about it.

I can’t tell you how many people in my circle of friends have asked me about it that don’t watch soccer. Every time I watch the video or see a photo of the save, I get goosebumps. Hell, I have goosebumps right now writing about it.

What makes it even better is that Tosaint Ricketts, who sent the cross into the box that found Jozy Altidore’s head, slowly started to celebrate before Frei dashed Ricketts, Altidore’s and Toronto fans hopes and dreams with that save.
