Goal Celebration

Sound Off - #CascadiaWeek; Kaka to MLS; Andy Rose loves his dog

Are you over the shock yet? Yeah, me either. Saturday was a bit of a strange one from the Sounders perspective as they were stunned by the World Cup-winning Columbus Crew at CenturyLink Field thanks to a late Justin Meram goal. Next up though? The winless Portland Timbers at Providence Park in the Rose City. It's officially Cascadia Week. Let's dig in to the links as we get set for our trip south at the weekend.
