Just got back (well last night) from Seattle Washington, where I spent the better part of the last four days and where I had the opportunity to shoot the MLS Cup.

This is my 7th time shooting the event, and each time it gets better then the last. There’s always something to see, and whether you enjoy watching football, shooting sporting events or browsing Flickr for shots of the event while you dabble in a bit of party poker, it’s clear to see that there is no end of exciting events taking place.

By far the most incredible part of the whole event was actually sitting field side and listening to the Seattle Sounder Fans chant in unison as the league honored their team. I can’t tell you how amazing the 46,000+ people chanting at once sounded – they were phenomenal.

Other highlights of the trip included meeting some amazing people, including MLS Commentator Brian Dunseth – former MLS player. I also got to hook up it the usual suspects, my buddy Matt Mathai, fellow photographers Andy Mead and Scott Bales and a slew of other people.

You can check out the pictures I shot from the event at Your Sport Shooter. I’ll soon have a selected bunch up here for you to enjoy as well.
