SEATTLE -- Opening night for the MLS incarnation of the Seattle Sounders had all the feeling of a blockbuster movie premiere. There was the excited, energetic audience, which helped create a dramatic backdrop. There was Sigi Schmid serving as the award-winning director, showing why his magic touch as coach had led to honors in the past. And then there was Fredy Montero, who played the role of leading man, providing moments of brilliance on a night that won't soon be forgotten in Seattle.
