Michael Parkhurst on the tackle that led to Atlanta's first goal: "We had seen a video, and Brad had even told me before the game that a lot of times when [Ebobisse] checks to the ball he likes to go to his right to play the inside of the left foot. I saw that he was shaping up to do that, so I slid to block the pass. Josef did the rest from there. He does what he always does and put it in the back of the net."

Jeff Carlisle U.S. soccer correspondent 

Michael Parkhurst who had been on the losing side of four MLS Cup finals before tonight's win: "I've dreamed of what it felt like to be in the locker room with the champagne. I've heard it before from the other locker room. It was worth the wait. It was special to be in there. I can't wait to party tonight."
