Seattle Sounders F.C. ~The Champions!

recently-updated-001

There was a lot of cheering going on at this old house on Saturday evening when our Seattle Sounders won in penalty kicks against the Toronto Football Club. This was our first ever win of the championship cup and Seattle is buzzing. There is a victory march and rally planned for Tuesday. It looks like the weather for the march and rally will be as cold as it was in Toronto for the game.

It’s no secret our family are huge Seattle Sounders Soccer fans and that we’ve been season ticket holders since the beginning in 2009. We’ve waited for 8 years to see our team win the MLS Cup Final! We are so happy for our boys and #thismoment in their franchise history.

Our Josh and Laura were able to travel to Toronto, Canada for the game. Their trip there got very complicated when their plane experienced mechanical issues. It ended up being a 24 hour trip to get to Toronto with delays and re-scheduled flights for them. They arrived in Toronto, checked into their hotel and took a nap before the Saturday evening game.

Here are some photos from over the years of us enjoying games or representing with our Sounders gear in other parts of the world.

… the Sounders simply willed themselves to the crown, and when Torres’ match-winner hit the back of the net it almost felt like a sort of destiny. For all the fire the Sounders came through to get here, what are a few more licks of flame?

Drink this in, Sounders fans. It gets no better than sitting atop the league. After the wildest season in MLS history, the trophy is coming home.

We are drinking it in here at this old house.

  1. That is just awesome that they were there to see the win!!!!! I was able to watch the last bit by streaming the game on my computer and was hoping they would show the Sounders fans more clearly!!! Great pictures for a memorable trip to TO. Hope their trip back was better than the one coming – ugh!

  2. Congrats to your team for their championship win!! I know that it is exciting to you loyal fans!

    I smiled at the fan photos through the years. They are all in the same color theme! 🙂
