Horrible atrocities have been committed on soccer fields all over the world in the name of free kicks. But never, ever, ever, has anything so ill conceived and fantastically terrible as what happened last night graced our Vinescape. And, of course, the CONCACAF Champions League provided this heated pile of melted dog hair to our door. It truly is a treasure of our time.
The Sounders routed the Vancouver Whitecaps on Wednesday night to earn a spot in the CCL knockout stage. It was the second time Seattle beat Vancouver 3-0 in five days.
But forget all that. Vancouver’s Robert Earnshaw hit this free kick like he was aiming for a aerial surveillance drone.
