My Outdoor Wednesday Post is from the soccer field at the U.S. Open Cup Semi-finals in Renton, Washington. Thanks to Susan at A Southern DayDreamer for hosting the weekly event.
Tuesday afternoon/evening I attended the Sounders U.S. Open Cup Game against Houston Dynamo with my kids and Jamie D. What an intense physical game. Houston scored in the first half and we didn’t tie the game up until the 89th minute to force an overtime. We scored in the first five minutes of overtime and then it was nail biting excitement to the end!!
Our seats were up close and personal. We were happy to have just a little shade because it was hot in Seattle yesterday. Very close to 90 degrees but it felt even hotter on the field.
Jaqua got hit hard early in the first half and had to have his head bandaged. The ref really did not control the game well and the crowd let him know what they thought of him. Jaqua ended up scoring in the 89th minute to tie the game!
The Seattle soccer crowd is loud!
You should have heard the crowd explode when we tied the game up and then when King scored early on in overtime. We now head to the finals that are sometime in September.
Things are a bit slow for me in bloggy world this week. My connections here in Seattle are slower then molasses and my brain is distracted with all the home activities I have here. Hopefully I’ll get organized soon.
Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.
