    If I was watching the game back then I think I could have been able to build a nice retaining wall with the bricks I would have excreted.

    My wife and I attended the 2003 Final, but 17 years later I find that I forgot about Razov's PK failure and other muffed chances. I also forgot what the actual score turned out to be, how quickly Ekelund scored, and one of Donovan's goals, so watching the game again on TV did provide me with a few surprises. Merryl also reminded me how pessimistic I was before that game. I thought Chicago was very strong, and though the Quakes won their playoff games, they weren't dominant throughout. And seeing the game on TV reminded me what a beast Zach Thornton was. Nobody was going to win a physical battle with him. Finally, that was, I think, the 8th MLS Cup, and the EQ had won 2 of them (25%). That was pretty good. Now it is 2020. We have still won twice, but now that is down to just under 7%. (Of course, if we were to add two MLS Cups won in Houston, we would double that figure!).

    Chicago was the heavy favorite going in, as I recall.

    My eldest daughter and I (she was 12 at the time - had coached her youth team for years) made the trek and stayed in a hotel the night before (she liked that better than the game, I think!).
    The morning of the game, we took the hotel elevator down and it was full of Chicago fans. We had our Quakes gear on and they just glared and made some comments.
    During the game, our seats were right next to the Chicago contingent, who would, every time Onstad would take a goal kick yell, "F$#K YOU, A$$HOLE!".
    Winning that one was extra sweet. My daughter will be 29 this coming weekend and we still talk about that game...

    That was before I knew you personally; but now, on the TV rebroadcast, I'm pretty sure I saw you (and many other people I've met since that time, such as John Jussen) in the Quakes-fans section at that game.. :thumbsup:

    Sadly, I can’t watch these, being out of market. I have CBS “All Access” but that doesn’t help any. :cry::cry::cry:
