On the Seattle Sounders' victory over Philadelphia, March 25 2010

Resound, fair city, with the cheers of folk
Who have attended this field in bulk

Captain Schmidt and all his green-blue crew
Will give you a sight to thrill the heart anew

The champions of Congo, Sweden, Oregon
Play with the pleasure of a baker's mum

Gracious in triumph, they extend a hand
To Union men of the far east land

The season ends in Europe, but the crown
Of Football has to Puget Sound come down.
