Take a Gamble on the Gambian Gamer


Sanna Nyassi, the hero. Who knew? Not me but WTF do I know. Still give the kid his props for bagging both goals last night for Seattle and becoming the first MLS player to score multiple U.S. Open Cup goals.

Say, here's a random bit of trivia. According to Wikipedia this isn't his first time playing the role of cup final hero as he scored the game-winner in the 2007 Gambian FA Cup for his previous club, Gambia Ports Authority (whose unfortunate, sailor suit image-evoking nickname is "The Ferry Boys"). So knowing that, if the Sounders make MLS Cup you should call your bookie the second they qualify for the final and put whatever paper you can on a Seattle victory with this 'lil guy nabbing the game-winner.
