The Sounders ground out a 0-0 AET draw and won on PKs. Here’s the best of MLS twitter reactions.

MLS: MLS Cup Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Despite failing to put a single shot on target, with only 3 total shots, the Seattle Sounders won the MLS Cup on Penalty Kicks last night. After a 0-0 draw over the course of 90 minutes, neither team could find a goal in extra time either. But it took a sensational Stefan Frei save on Jozy Altidore to keep it that way.

In penalty kicks, Seattle came out on top, 5 to 4. Former Colorado Rapids goalkeeper Clint Irwin made an awesome save on Alvaro Fernandez, and fellow former Rapids defender Drew Moor converted his first ever MLS penalty shot low and to the right. But misses by Michael Bradley and a doink off the crossbar for Justin Morrow set up burly Panamanian center back Roman Torres, who coolly knocked in the winner to give the rave green Sounders the 2016 title.

Here are some of the best reactions from around MLS and Rapids twitter.

Coach Brian Schmetzer was happy, and he seems like a nice guy.

...And someone may have thrown Canadian delicacies on the field.

Overall, feelings on the game from neutrals were... negative.

Of course there were hair comments.

But most importantly, there was shade. Beautiful, beautiful shade.

#DareToTerry was blunt as ever.

Others similarly emoted.

...

And now the tyranny of rave green begins...

Mostly: official team twitter shade is best shade.

There were some good trophy takes. Attn: Don Garber.

And finally, my two cents.
