SEATTLE – Thousands of fans celebrated the Seattle Sounders 3-1 Major League Soccer Cup win over Toronto FC with a parade Tuesday through downtown Seattle.

It was the Sounders second league title in four seasons. Playing before the second-largest crowd ever for an MLS Cup final, it was among the most anticipated matches in league history.

Seattle helped change the scope of the league when it arrived 10 years ago and this was the first time the host of the final was also playing in the final.
