SCORE! Our Museum completes FC Seattle era

Thanks to Frank MacDonald, whose current gig is writer at SoundersFC.com, the www.GOALSeattle.com Soccer Museum pages for FC Seattle Storm have been updated with scores and Seattle goal scorers for that club's 8-year history.

It is a set of missing links to our soccer heritage that have now been restored.

As I typed in the tables the names, matches, faces and plays came back to life for me.

That 10-2 win over Arizona in 1990. The Championship of 1988. The stupid tie-breaker (tb) that didn't allow for a draw. The times FC Seattle played the world. No, really: Santos, Dundee, Dnepr, Middlesbrough, Guadalajara, more.

Those were good years for soccer in Seattle, and the scores go a certain way towards pointing out how offensively-gifted the Storm were with players like Chance Fry, Scott Benedetti, Eddie Henderson, Brent Goulet, Peter Hattrup...

Please look back at these updated pages at your leisure. We are steamrolling to 2009 and Seattle's biggest soccer moments seem destined to arrive soon after.

Let's not forget where we came from as we get psyched about where we are going.
