While You Were Sleeping: Clint Dempsey Silences Portland Crowd With Late Equalizer

Remember when Clint Dempsey’s soccer career was all but over due to a heart condition?

Dempsey came through once again for the Seattle Sounders, scoring a short-handed, 94th-minute equalizer over the rival Portland Timbers.

Dempsey’s goal wasn’t the only late-night thriller Sunday night. UFC Fight Night in Oklahoma City wasn’t without controversy, and Ichiro Suzuki became the oldest man to start at center field in a major league game since 1900.
