Sometimes you just gotta talk shit. And your first home game against the team you defeated to win the championship is one of those times. You may remember the arrogance of Toronto FC leading up to MLS Cup and their tifo claiming that their time had come. We all know how well that worked out for them, but just in case they may have pushed them from memory, we wanted to remind them that their trophy case still sits empty while ours has grown yet again. The design of this display started in a conversation late in the night after Roman Torres buried the game winning penalty kick, as we rode the train back to the Loose Moose to celebrate. 2016 was a roller coaster, but no one can deny that it was our time. 2017 is a celebration, and we’re here to remind the league that nothing is more powerful than Seattle Sounders.
This display included our first card switch, as we started with red cards to create Toronto’s empty trophy case and then changed to green cards to create our trophy case with the MLS cup in it. The display also included painting 3 MLS Cups, bringing the season total to 4. Being insufferable isn’t easy, that cup is curvy!
