Rumor has it, the Seattle Sounders were in Toronto on Saturday to play for the MLS Cup Championship. I tuned in but didn’t see any Sounders that I recognized*.
I can’t remember the last time the Sounders were so emphatically played off the pitch. There was not one single moment in that match were I felt the Sounders deserved to share the pitch with TFC. That was gross.
*Actually, Stefan Frei looked like Stefan Frei. And Leerdam looked like a rockstar. But that’s it, just two of 11 players played like they wanted to win. I know, I know, “wanted to win” is Neoplatonic bullcrap (and I don’t mean the ice cream), but it sure looked like that.
