USOC Photos: Sounders Beat Earthquakes

Before the Seattle Sounders and Portland Timbers played in the quarterfinals of the US Open Cup, Seattle had to first defeat the San Jose Earthquakes. Which they did, in a penalty shootout.

I’ve heard it said that watching the Sounders play in the US Open Cup at Starfire is like seeing your favorite band play in a tiny bar. It’s so true. You’re much closer to the action, and it’s a much more intimate setting.

And where else can Marcus Hahnemann head over to the beer garden to trade his jersey for a cold one after winning the match? Seriously, I think every one of these US Open Cup matches has something like this happen. I love them.
