Sounders FC blow it

Wednesday night was my first Seattle Sounders FC game viewed live from outside the pressbox.

Some friends had some extra tickets so I bought a scarf and joined in the Qwest Field fun for 29,000 others.

Great atmosphere. Great goals. Great letdown by the home side.

An horrendous own goal by Tyrone Marshall in the 87th minute robbed Seattle of two deserved points and even more deserved respect from around the league.

And while I might forget this disappointment soon, I will never forget that world-class goal by Osvaldo Alonso. Whatever the result -- that goal was well worth the price of admission.

Less than a month until my 'halfsies' season tickets kick in!
