Sigi heard you. I asked Sounders coach Sigi Schmid this morning if those on the pitch could notice that upper-deck seats were sold last night, and that the Sounders were playing before their largest MLS crowd of the season.
“It was definitely louder,” he said. “I thought it was louder. I thought the fans were really into it, the intensity. You could definitely feel the buzz in the stadium. The opening game had a tremendous buzz. The game against [FC] Dallas had a great buzz. Not that any game has been bad for us but this game was right up there with those two games.”
And now, if you’d like to relive the entire night at Qwest in two minutes, here it is in hyper-cool time lapse, courtesy of the TNT’s hyper-cool photo department.
