MLS Regular Season - Kasey Keller Day - The Heritage Cup

Kasey Keller night notes

64,140 ... for a regular season game. This is better attendance than for Celtic or Boca.

Scrappy game. A young team playing in front of a big crowd with nothing to lose will be a dangerous opponent sometimes. They were in this instance as well.

The Mauro Effect. Best signing in the league this year and an immediate game changer when he went on.

Kasey played like the Kasey of the mid 90s, the 4 save sequence was like an indoor goalie flopping around. That is a compliment.

The Sounders 2nd goal seemed inevitable judging by the SJ body language after the first.

The Ceremony was nice too. Way to treat the wife with a gift.
