What most people don't understand is that home field advantage isn't always about where you play. Just as often, it's about what you're playing for. And no matter where the games are played, US Open Cup matches are home matches for the Seattle Sounders, because this is their Cup. It's our Cup. Sounders players have been stomped, cut, mocked, and bruised for it.

Today's match against the San Jose Earthquakes was always going to be an unwelcome fixture. The third match in seven days (and fourth in ten) it tags along like an annoying little brother. The priority was, of course, the US Open Cup Final on Wednesday. And between the regular season matches that book-ended the final, you'd prioritize the home match against the LA Galaxy over the away match to San Jose, and so it looks like we did.

The New York Red Bulls should have entered Sunday night's home match against Portland Timbers full of confidence. After a disastrous, listless showing two weeks ago in Houston, they had bounced back with a 2-0 home victory sealed by a late Jan Gunnar Solli goal. Despite intense competition at the top of MLS' Eastern Conference, there's no team in the East (perhaps none in the league) that can match RBNY's roster, on paper at least.

Their brave new world wasn't meant to turn out like this.
