Vancouver and Seattle combined to score three goals in four minutes late in their 2-2 tie on Saturday night, but the Whitecaps’ Eric Hassli got the gold star.

When a player describes a goal as “I just closed my eyes and shot,” you know he’s probably done something special. Hassli’s 85th-minute goal was his second of the night, and came after Seattle had scored in the 81st and 84th minutes to stun the visiting Whitecaps and take a 2-1 lead.

“I could give him that shot probably another 99 times and I don’t know if he’s going to score it,” Sounders goalkeeper Kasey Keller said. “But he did today, and sometimes you just have to shake someone’s hand and just say that’s a hell of a goal.”



Eric Hassli was born on May 3rd, 1981 according to

5 + 3 +2+0+1+1 = 12 = his personal year (from May 3rd, 2011 to May 2nd, 2012) = Phenomenal.

12 year + 6 (June) = 18 = his personal month (from June 3rd, 2011 to July 2nd, 2011) = Surreal.

18 month + 12 (12th of the month on Sunday June 12th, 2011) = 30 = his personal day = Soccer.  Thankful.
