Chelsea FC 2, Seattle Sounders FC 0

What a great day to be a soccer fan in Seattle.

More than 65,000 fans showed up to Qwest Field on Saturday afternoon, not only to see one of the best club teams in the world, but also to root on their team.

A massive stadium full of rave green -- it was a beautiful thing.

Better yet, led by Freddie Ljungberg, the Sounders FC made a game of it.

Chelsea was, of course, the better team, but Seattle gave a fight for 90 minutes. The underdogs had their chances, but just lacked the final scoring touch.

The Sounders FC provided the on-field credibility to the sport in this country that the Seattle fans have already done all season in the stands.

And, of course, I can't overlook the rare opportunity to see world-class players like Frank Lampard, John Terry and Petr Cech in action.

It was a day I'll never forget. Here are the highlights:
