Drew Carey predicted a 1-0 Sounders victory.

Well, that would have been the final score had Fredy Montero not bagged a brace for the home side last evening.

You couldn't have scripted a better start as Montero scored early (11th minute) in front of a crazy sold out expanded capacity crowd and they kept rolling from there.

The question now is what can they do for an encore?

News & Notes:

- Now we know why Colorado is waiting to announce the Scott Palguta signing. 

- Jozy may be stuck in limbo in Spain, but Bob Bradley has called him up for the next round of World Cup Qualifiers.

- The Portland 2011 expansion team is official. Now all of the talk can move to who's next and is MLS doing too much , too fast?

- One person is happy about Vancouver saying they will have a grass field when they make the jump and it's not Steve Nash.
