One game for the trophy. Galaxy at Sounders, 60k on hand at Century Link. No score in the 1st half, a physical match as expected.

The CFB slate is weak enough that I've seen 10-15 minutes.

MLS has come a long way.

Seattle scores off a quick start on a foul. LA needs 2 goals in the final few minutes.

LA's goalie came out and lost the ball. Pappa scores his second, an empty netter to seal it 2-0. Now Seattle will try for the unprecedented North American treble (USOC, SS, MLS cup).

Ahh, the treble!

Love what Seattle did to the Galaxy. Now, we just need LA to get knocked out of the playoffs as soon as possible.

Ok I gotta ask but what exactly is the Supporter Shield and how is it determined who plays? Isn't just a one game thing?

Never mind...I decided not to be lazy and googled it. So it's not a match but it was kind of one this year because Seattle and LA had the same record or whoever won would have the best record? Got it!

First time in league history that the shield was decided in the last game between the teams in first and second. Pretty dynamite scheduling, and it was like a playoff series would be with a home and away.

Going to the SKC-NYRB game tomorrow. Winner gets to avoid the wild card game. If the Royals win tonight then it will be interesting to see what the attendance is.

Let's go Crew! Hoping for a Olumbus win over Philadelphia and a draw between KC/NY (sorry Zoo).

Yeah I need Philly to win for some insurance. Every team in the East has been turning it on lately except NY and KC. Whatever happens tonight, I expect they playoffs to end early for those teams.
