Finally, Sounders FC have given us something awesome, not just good, AWESOME to talk about. A performance fueled by the return of soccer's #beastmode and the addition of a couple new players on the pitch meant the fans had something to go bananas about - and go bananas they did!

It’s hard to get over just how skillfully unstoppable Obafemi Martins can be when he gets his little toes on a soccer ball.
He’s a regular beast mode of the Sounders with his first goal in two months delivered just minutes into his return. What a triumph for an otherwise lacking Seattle squad. A bit of magic in CenturyLink that day helped on by a couple new dudes to the squad. Ross helps us understand what it means to have Nelson Valdez and Roman Torres in our squad - in Torres case, it’s more than huge, awesome hair and calf muscles!

Something we didn’t cover in the cast due to recording day was the CONCACAF Champions League match at home last night. The reserve squad of players that consists of a large portion of S2 graduates (Kovar, Jones, etc), gave up an early goal vs CD Olimpia and looked to be goners, even after subs until super late in the match when things went bonkers.

Friberg used that beautiful head of his to bring a 90th minute goal - CUTTING IT CLOSE, GUYS. Then a stupid challenge by CD Olimpia in their own box on a back-to-goal Remmick found the whistle of the ref and a penalty kick after stoppage time had run dry! Somehow, Sounders FC walked away from this match with 3 points and what looks like a semi-final appearance on the way!
