LIVE FROM HISTORIC CIVIC STADIUM IN PORTLAND, OREGON, IT’S SOCCER BOWL ’77. COSMOS V. SOUNDERS!!!
Very groovy footage. What’s up with that first goal by the Cosmos? I think that’s called cheating!
Besides demonstrating that the late ’70s were, in fact, rad beyond belief, that footage implicitly shows just how badly the NASL blew it. I mean, they had it—a packed stadium for the championship match, with away fans all the way from New York. If they’d kept things sensible, stuck with their top 10 or 12 markets and grown slowly, we’d have a dynamite league today.
