Seattle Sounders: 2 Seasons, 2 Trophies

So, no disrespect to DC United, but may need to be handed over at some point if this keeps up. Seattle Sounders beat Columbus Crew 2-1 in front of over 30,000 fans to repeat as US Open Cup champions. They are the first repeat champion since New York PancyprianFreedoms (yeah, that's a team) in 1982 and 83.

I will never be able to do justice to a US Open Cup match report like does, so go check out their coverage of the final or check out the highlight video below.
