Diver Down - Roger Levesque goal celebration
In tonight's 4-2 Sounders victory over the NY Red Bulls, fan favorite Roger Levesque came on as a second half sub and scored the game winner on a header, and then added the insurance goal when NY keeper Greg Sutton misplayed a passback with his feet.
Roger has a sense of humor, as evidenced in his goal celebration after his second goal. You can skip ahead to 1:39:34 on ESPN.com's match replay, and you'll see what I mean - Levesque sits on the ad boards, and holds his nose and topples over backwards like a scuba diver entering the water off the stern of a boat. Good times!
No, this has nothing to do with miniatures and everything to do with my love for soccer, the Sounders, and players who don't dive/act/embellish or otherwise behave like assclowns. The icing on the cake? My indoor team won 6-1 and I went out for beers after the game with the lads.
Now if the US can beat Mexico in the Gold Cup final on Saturday, my futbol week will be complete.
