Dempsey Brace, Oba Flip – Sounders Dominate Opener

What an amazing way to start the MLS season – Seattle Sounders beat the New England Revolution by a score of 3-0. The deadly striker duo of Clint Dempsey and Obafemi Martins started up right where they left off last year. Dempsey scored twice and Oba added a goal and assist.

As for my night, it was another fun one, for obvious reasons. Sounders goals always make for an evening filled with merriment. Oba’s pre- and post-flip celebrations are some of my favorites. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely love the actual Obaflips. But the raw emotion and pure joy that he expresses while not flipping are truly priceless.

I hope you enjoy perusing these photos as much as I had making them.
