Last night’s Seattle Sounders vs New York Red Bulls match was a fun and fitting return home for the defending champions. This game had (almost) everything: tifo, stars, a really big cup, goals, yellow cards, flame throwers, penalties, flare-ups, etc. And even — to my delight — a dive by Red Bulls forward Fredrik Gulbrandsen.
Even though it didn’t hurt the Sounders, (Gulbrandsen was actually shown a yellow card for simulation on the play,) I couldn’t resist the chance to get in on some of the shooting stars fun. We were inspired by the LA Galaxy who put MLS into the meme last week, but I think you’ll agree that ours has a special, watercolor-y twist.
