So far this season we have seen a dramatic battle between the Timbers and the Whitecaps in Vancouver followed by a cagey affair in Seattle between the Sounders and the […]
Sporting Kansas City played to a thrilling 4-4 draw against the Houston Dynamo that consisted of an absolutely beautiful strike by Benny Feilhaber late into stoppage time to earn the point. I will admit, I didn’t expect a 4-4 thriller. I was expecting a 0-0 or maybe 1-0 game and thought that Sporting had blown […]

It’s that time again, derby day. Portland and Seattle have a rivalry that transcends soccer, sports, and coffee. These two cities are timeless adversaries in almost every way. Trophies and awards are good and well, but almost nothing beats the feeling of seeing the northern fishing village lose.
The Thierry Henry and David Beckham eras are both over in MLS. We didn’t get the MLS Cup matchup Don Garber secretly wanted between the two during their time. We didn’t even get the retirement game MLS fans deserved between Henry and Donovan in December thanks to Charlie Davies’ hand. Before I forget, we did […]
