New, 11 comments

It's a week to celebrate here on FTBL. Not only is it our 1-year anniversary, but the Whitecaps are celebrating winning - against the odds - a record 5th Cascadia Cup after defeating the Seattle Sounders 0 - 1 at CenturyLink Field last Friday night.

In Part 1 Mark and Jorge go back and take a look back and celebrate a historic night in the Emerald City discussing men of the match, goal controversy, professional performances, Sounders whining and that criminal tackle by Obafemi Martins on young Kekuta Manneh.

In Part 2 the guys preview this week's match against the San Jose Earthquakes, review the MLS Playoff race and talk about USL PRO teams for Seattle and Portland.  Of course there is time for some silly FTBL fun as the guys debate the "Man Bun" baldness 'crisis'.
