Writing these bad boys are always way more fun when we win. They're always way more funner than that when we beat the Portland Timbers 4-2 at Providence Park on the back of a pair of Obagoals and a Clint "hustle your buns off" Dempsey finish. And who could forget Chad Barrett's ballerina celebration. All the fun. Anyway, it's been a bit since I brought a Sound Off to you, so here we go. Sit back and enjoy some top quality linkage.
