What a great day to be alive, am I right?!
Sun's out in Seattle, my breakfast was delicious, put my comfy socks on and OH THE SOUNDERS BEAT THE TIMBERS.
Three points is three points and all that but three points against the Timbers is just far sweeter than against any other team in MLS. Make it three straight wins in the league to boot.
So yes, Sunday's match wasn't the most attractive demonstration of football but it certainly was the result the Sounders desired. Even Clint Dempsey's goal, which normally are otherwordly, was pretty ordinary...and that's totally fine!
There was a ton going on in and around CenturyLink Field on matchday so let us recap all the fun in the latest Social Timeline. I know you're excited, don't even try and hide it.
This is a cool photo, you guys.
Look how cool Oba looks!
Not fair, Stef. Not fair at all.
Lamar was PUMPED.
Hey look, it’s Clint Dempsey’s jersey! He scored!
Probably one of the best photographs ever taken.
Lineup. Nice lineup.
Look at all the pretty colors :-)

Backheels FOR DAYS AND DAYS AND DAYS.
This was pretty cool.
And another cool angle. Big ups for this.
Miss you, Chad.
My favorite tweet.
And so it begins…
This was pretty cool!
Pretty dry first half if I’m being honest. It’s ok, would pick up in the second.
Check this out. Cool video featuring everyone’s favorite guy from Feddy Way, Lamar Neagle.
Back at it. Come on, Seattle!
77’ - GOALLLLLLL CLINTTTTTTT DEMPSEYYYYYYYYYYYY WAHOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!— Sounders Matchday (@LIVESounders) April 27, 2015
77’ - Long throw comes in, bounces into the area Rose gets a shot off that Kwarasey can’t hold and DEMPSEY powers home. 1-0 GOOD GUYS.— Sounders Matchday (@LIVESounders) April 27, 2015
That’ll do it, folks. As long as that ball crosses the line.
78’ - Not the prettiest goal in the world but WHO AM I KIDDING ALL GOALS AGAINST PORTLAND ARE THE PRETTIEST GOALS IN THE WORLD.— Sounders Matchday (@LIVESounders) April 27, 2015
So, so pretty.
Definitely a celebration the real Clint Dempsey would be proud of.
And there’s the final bell. Sounders win! And now for some player reaction…
After a 15 hour flight and 9 hour difference. I have arrived in Seattle, it makes me feel so much better that we beat Portland!— Cristian Roldan⚽ (@CristianRoldan) April 27, 2015
