If you recall the carnival-game experience of throwing balls at rows of animal bean-bag targets, needing to knock off three to win a plush toy, you know how the Sounders felt Sunday at the Clink against the Los Angeles Galaxy.
They spent a wad of bills -- 22 shots, in fact -- peppering the target. No plush three points. No single point. No nothing. If you're a dad, your kid walks away quietly, head down.
