Late last night
While we were all in bed
Miss O’Leary left a lantern in the shed
When the cow tipped it over
She winked her eye and said
“It will be a hot time
in the old town tonight”

FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!

"Salt Lake was very cautious the whole game and never tried to take advantage of Seattle being a man down until the final minutes of the game."

I think they had to keep 3 guys back to mark Montero. Although he didn't score, he was a constant threat to their defense. Also some of the debate is over him being pulled down by the last defender which has now become an automatic red. The guy got a yellow. It was away from goal but not that far away as Freddie has scored from distance many times.

Real didn't really start to press the attack until Montero came off in the 75th minute. They didn't have the same respect for David Estrada that they had for Freddie.

JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH

When I see you FIRE
I go out of my head
I just can't get enough, I just can't get enough
All the things you do to me and everything you say
I just can't get enough
I just can't get enough
We slip and slide as we fall in love and I just can't seem to get enough of
Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo Doo Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo Doo Doo
Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo Doo Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo Doo Doo
Doo, Doo, Doo, da doo doo, Doo! Doo! Doo! Doo!

Ohh! Pappers is a mod! When did that happen? Great choice!


Edit: I'm a huge fan of Pappers, I just wish I could say the same about his footy chants/songs.

What a lot of people don't realize is Landon doesn't show emotion... like, ever. Being an LA supporter, I've seen so many interviews with him. Here's what SWMBO and I say about him:



Dude is constantly having a day. And the whole "waning interest in the USMNT" I think is somebody taking a quote he had in an interview and spinning it to make a story.

One thing I don't understand about MLS games is the drum.
Sometimes you can hardly hear the commentary over the drum.
And it usually sound like its being beaten by some drunk twenty something who hasn't played drums since middle school band.
Pretty sure it was the last Timbers v. Sounders game I watched where the entire stadium sound was dominated by:
DUM DUM......DUM DUM......DUM DUM DUM DUM.......DUM DUM.....DUM DUM.......DUM DUM DUM DUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Same goes for soccer in Eastern Europe....did "Seven Nation Army" just now become popular over there??

The best drumming is Brazil. Years ago when the USWNT was pretty hot (yes, they were) we went down to Portland to watch a double header with the US, Canada, Brazil and somebody else. The entire Brazil match beautiful rythms and chants and dancing. Very cool.

I think the 20 somthing, never had a music lesson, should be at a man circle drumming is the norm for the MLS. Can't do that stuff at the No Fun League.


Sigi got suspended today for next match.... Sometimes the truth gets you suspended.

With the exception of FC Dallas, who's supporters have an actual drumline, the drums are typically used to keep the beat for chants/songs as well as add some "boom" factor. Not to mention you can hear trumpets at a couple stadiums. Houston have a couple, you can hear one in Portland often (usually during the Tetris song), and Seattle have a band.
