Remember that time in Chicago when........ or how about that time in Portland?

I think this is two nominations...

One is the Sounders bring the US Open Cup to the post-match bar in Philly, and watching Stefan Frei on Sportscenter with Stefan Frei.

Two is carrying the USOC to the NY match on the NY subway, including Glenn asking a lady, "Ma'am, have you ever sat next to a national sports trophy before?"

So tempted to go with Glenn talking to the woman on the NYC subway...

But for me it's Joe Kimpo and Jessica who drove to Dallas.. and had their car totaled in Wyoming. Rented a car and still made it.

For me the best was both men's teams winning in a penalty shootout against the TA with ECSFC down in Portland

OOOh, watching Stefan Frei with Stefan Frei while Coach Smetzer gets drunk is definitely a highlight of 2014!

I love that there are several "... while Coach Schmetzer gets drunk" moments this season. :P

There was so much win from USOC Post match at the bar that that whole evening should just win.

Dutra and Smetzer drunk off their minds was amazing to witness.
I believe Coach Smetzer even called me out that night for drinking an Angry Orchard and not a man drink like Tequila

Many thumbs up for USOC post-game. I mean, what other professional teams in the world would have moments like that with their fans?? Too many good memories that night alone..

Schmetzer, Frei..

Adrian shaking anyone's hand that he could..

The pictures.

Sigi's tearful speech about how crazy we are, how we fuel the team, how he wants the jobs we have that allow (or not) us to travel..
