Epic Video: How It All Began

Here's a flashback post from March 19, 2009. The Sounders FC first game. Hard to believe it's already playoff time.

The Northern Rangers post went like this:

Today marked a new era in Seattle sports history. The world's game came into the Emerald City as the Sounders FC began play against the New York Red Bulls.

The Northern Rangers were at this historic event. Here's how the day went:

21-year-old forward Fredy Montero scored two of the three Sounder goals. And he showed that he has amazing talent and was an excellent pickup from Columbia.

Lacey, Washington native Kasey Keller stood out as he made some spectacular saves throughout the game.

And one of the coolest events at the game was when the Sounders would score. Confetti was shot from the roof and it rained down onto the field and the crowd. By the third goal, the pitch was covered and the crowd was louder than ever.

Please note: My favorite part about this is watching the Northern Rangers videos now. I think the host has become much better and more comfortable. haha.
