Hi Sportsburgers,

Even if you’re rooting for the Kansas City Royals, you’ve got to admit that Madison Bumgarner’s 4-hit shutout last night was a piece of post-season greatness. Hot damn.
Your browser does not support iframes.

What was less great, but still historic in an infamous sort of way, was Aaron Lewis’ split second decision to rewrite the lyrics of the Star Spangled Banner. Apparently we’re all proudly hailing the gallantly streaming early light of dawn?

Lincecum doesn’t like it. You have to feel for the Staind singer, who has likely cemented a barrage tweets containing links to lyrics websites and jokes about ol’ Francis Scott being really Keyed up about the miff. Please also note that Lewis has the words “Don’t Tread On Me” tattooed onto his neck. Yikes.

Dear Sports, thank you for never failing to deliver something amazing every week.

In other news, the best news, the Seattle Sounders played some high level and very physical soccer this weekend to beat the LA Galaxy and take the Supporter’s Shield trophy for the best regular season record.

There were some near brawls

Plenty of Marco Pappa cheers for this goal!

And of course some flaming shield lifting!

Bravo Sounders! On to the post season.
