The Seattle Sounders justifiably don't care much about that right now, because on Saturday night they did what they had to: They took a beating, they took on the cold and they shut out the high-powered Toronto FC attack en route to the franchise's first ever MLS Cup title, winning 5-4 on penalties after a scoreless, relentless and aesthetically unsatisfying 120 minutes. This was a game hyped in poetry and played in prose. Elbows were thrown, No. 10s were hacked, passes were attempted and only sporadically completed. Here's how it all happened"
