And, because there is more than one kind of football, we have a special guest report from MNB reader Stephanie Steiner, who wanted to make sure that we included the following:

The Seattle Sounders FC defeated Toronto FC in a grueling and bitter competition that went long and hard and ended in sudden death penalty kicks. It was the first trip to MLS Cup for both Clubs. Stefan Frei was the MLS Cup MVP.
KC's View:
I'm really glad that Stephanie wrote in with this info ... since I have no idea what to make of the fact that the final game apparently went into overtime with a 0-0 score, but somehow Seattle beat Toronto 5-4. Not sure exactly how this happens, but it sounds impressive.
