Call it a sentimental pick if you like, but it was tough to give this week's SBI MLS Player of the Week award to anybody but Seattle goalkeeper Kasey Keller.
Not only did Keller help draw a crowd of more than 64,000 to CenturyLink Field to see the final regular season home game of his illustrious career, but the 42-year-old goalkeeper made a plethora of clutch saves with his Seattle Sounders trailing San Jose. Those saves, including a four-save flurry in the 65th minute, helped pave the way for a late Sounders comeback capped by a Freddy Montero game-winning goal in the 87th minute to give Seattle a 2-1 victory.
Keller beat out a list of worthy candidates that included Columbus Crew striker Andres Mendoza, Chicago defender Gonzalo Segares, Sporting KC forward Teal Bunbury and Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando to name a few.
What did you think of Keller's performance? Who do you think deserved this week's award?
