Damn, Even We Have To Admit That This Seattle Sounders Goal Is A Beauty

You know how we feel about MLS, but still, even we can't front on a team goal of this quality. This is a textbook three man weave the likes of which you'd be happy to pull off in training, let alone a match. Pure class. Bravo, Sounders. » 3/08/15 11:29pm 3/08/15 11:29pm

Is CenturyLink Field Selling Watered-Down Beer?

A Seattle news station purchased multiple beers at Seahawks and Sounders games, had them tested, and discovered that in every case, the samples' ABV were below those beers' advertised numbers—sometimes illegally so. » 11/12/14 1:14pm 11/12/14 1:14pm

Pearl Jam's Mike McCready Shreds National Anthem At Sounders Match

We've mentioned this before, but instrumental national anthems are better than vocal performances nine times out of ten.

Timbers Give Fans Permission To Support The Sounders, For One Night Only

Playoff races make strange bedfellows. The Portland Timbers are hanging on for dear life, two measly points up on the Vancouver Whitecaps for the fifth and final playoff spot in the West. The Whitecaps face Portland's hated rival Seattle tonight, and Timbers fans are naturally a little confused. » 10/10/14 9:24am 10/10/14 9:24am

American Hero Clint Dempsey Gives Up Shirt For Kid's Popcorn

Clint Dempsey was craving some popcorn after the Seattle Sounders' game against Houston last night, so he gave his jersey to a kid in the stands in exchange for free reign at a bucket of popcorn.

Is This The Best Or Worst Customized Soccer Jersey?

Irfaan Gaffar, who took the photo, believes this customized Seattle Sounders jersey is the worst. I'm not as angry about it. 2 Chainz has been known to kick it like the captain of a soccer team. » 3/15/14 6:59pm 3/15/14 6:59pm

Sounders Fans Spent Three Weeks Making This Enormous Tifo

The Seattle Sounders hosted the Portland Timbers last night, and it was no ordinary match. It was the nationally televised home debut of newest Sounder Clint Dempsey, and it was held in a sold-out CenturyLink Field. So the home faithful pulled out all the stops. » 8/26/13 5:48pm 8/26/13 5:48pm

How MLS Made Sure Clint Dempsey Landed In Seattle

SI's Grant Wahl has the tick-tock on how Clint Dempsey ended up a Seattle Sounder, in a deal that caught everyone by surprise. It's a great read for anyone interested in the behind-the-scenes stuff, but I was particularly taken by how much of the dealing wasn't by the Sounders at all. Instead, it's clear that MLS… » 8/05/13 2:21pm 8/05/13 2:21pm

This Own Goal From Chivas USA Defender Mario de Luna Makes Us Sad

Midway through the first half in last night's MLS clash between the Seattle Sounders and Chivas USA, Sounders midfielder Mauro Rosales broke free down the right flank and lofted a ball into the box towards an open Obafemi Martins. But Rosales overshot his target, and the cross floated all the way to Chivas USA… » 6/02/13 11:15am 6/02/13 11:15am

The Seattle Sounders Will Let Fans Vote On Whether The GM Gets To Stick…

Because Major League Soccer is Major League Soccer, they have to go to greater lengths to enter the national consciousness. Sometimes that ends up ugly: recall that young lady who sang the anthem. But sometimes it's glorious! Remember when MLS mailed us a big box of premade cheesesteaks? Glorious meat, in glorious… » 10/03/12 2:45pm 10/03/12 2:45pm

Look At This Asshole Yelling In Some Guy's Face Because He Wouldn't Sit…

Apparently at Seattle Sounders games some people stand up the entire time as a show of support. That's cool, I guess. I'd prefer to sit in the seat for which I've paid, but to each his own. Some find it annoying because of the whole "better door than window" thing. I am also capable of understanding that point of… » 9/09/12 11:40pm 9/09/12 11:40pm

Sporting KC Wins U.S. Open Cup In Shootout Described As "More Dramatic…

That GolTV still exists is a miracle in itself; the soccer cable net recently lost its cash cow Spanish Liga contract to Al-Jazeera's new beIN Sports channel. It also lost popular analyst Ray Hudson, he of the orgasmic goal calls, which means GolTV's George D. Metellus served in the color commentary role for last… » 8/09/12 10:45am 8/09/12 10:45am
