The Seattle Sounders beat New York City FC in their inaugural match yesterday, 3-1. Just returning from my long weekend in Nanaimo for the Cascadia Poetry Festival (awesome time by the way- heard Brenda Hillman, Susan Musgrave, Sam Hamill, Stephen Collis, Amber Dawn and many more stellar land and sea poets, plus saw the unveiling of the new Cascadia map by David McCloskey), I only caught the match from the 52nd minute on. Luckily got to see the two late goals from the boys in Rave Green.
That 18 pass sequence was a different kind of Cascadian poetry. Just as beautiful.
