The Seattle Sounders opened their MLS season last night, and David Estrada - whom we picked for our MLS team last week - scored a debut hat-trick. As far I can tell only Zack Schilawski has ever hit a hat trick on his home opener, but that was the second match of the season for the Revolution, two years ago.
To celebrate a good fantasy pick - and we'll take credit for giving good advice regardless of which league it's in - here's the video.
To make things twice as sweet, I captained (love that "captained" is a verb) Estrada in the official MLS fantasy game. 34 points puts a shine on an otherwise (so far) mediocre Barclays Premier League fantasy week.
