How about we start by giving thanks for RSL’s surprise PK shootout win that knocked the Seattle Sounders out of the playoffs. We did learn a few things from the game, first was a reminder that David Ochoa is really starting to enjoy being a scoundrel. Second is another reminder that anything can happen in the playoffs - RSL was the only away team to advance to the semifinals. Third, the game revealed just how much we rely on Albert Rusnak to shuttle between defense and attack.
