Video: Seattle vs. RSL Recap



Seattle got it done against RSL last night in the first U.S. Open Cup play in match coming away with a 4-1 victory. And they did it without Keller, Ljungberg, Montero, Alonso and most of the other starters against a Salt Lake side that boasted regulars Beckerman, Olave, Williams, Johnson, Findley and Movsisyan. Impressive.

But I'm honestly more impressed with the comprehensive recap video --with goals included-- that they had posted up before the clock struck midnight last night, that they in essence have a B stadium that they can play Cup matches in and that 4K people showed up for a match so early in the tournament. Seattle I love (what) you (are doing)...but I hate you.

You know you love Seattle...every day you wish that RBNY was more like the Sounders. You wish they won more like Seattle, you wish they had depth like Seattle, you wish they had a website like Seattle, you wish they had the video coverage of Seattle, you wish they had the marketing of Seattle, you wish they had the local weekly tv show Seattle has, you wish they had tv contracts with local and regional channels...do I need to go on? When are you going to just start wearing the green and blue?

SF said...

Oh I do wish RBNY had all of that. But I wouldn't walk away from supporting my club because someone else has it better; I have to much loyalty for that.

You on the other hand seem to be a little more flexible in your sense of commitment. Hope the Sounders keep doing things right or we might find you wearing Timber green in a few years.

HAHA! Seeing Jordan in Timber green would be like seeing ice in Hell. At any rate, I do think it is funny that Jordan (being the most loyal and passionate supporter of teams I have ever met) does not expect that supporters of other teams share his own passion for their own teams. He has been trying to get me to root for Liverpool for years now! But I WILL NOT BETRAY my NUFC!!!

You should have said "without" Keller, Ljungberg, Montero, Alonso, Jaqua, etc. I was there, it was an absolute clinic with guys like Stephen King, Taylor Graham, Evan Brown, Jarrod Smith and Sanna Nyassi getting tons of minutes.

Zakuani and LeToux ran circles around RSL.

It would have been nice to see the build up to the goals instead of all the goal celebrations. But what do you expect from the team that kicked Dunny and the only live audio broadcast out of the press box for bloggers.

Jordan said...

Okay...I DO expect others to hold to the same standard of loyalty that I do...but what I'm not above is trying to convert SF since he has a bit of a crush on the Green and Blue anyway. Haha. He posts about us enough (don't stop! I love that my favorite soccer blog covers my team) and in each post you can hear that tinge of envy.

Oh yeah, Timbers suck. I'd root for the Whitecaps before the Timbers. Heck, I'd root for FC Dallas before Portland. Don't think I don't take pleasure every day in how furious the vaunted TA must feel that hated Seattle got a team first. I relish in it every time I see them around the web.
