Clint Dempsey snatches ref's notebook, tears it up, gets sent off

The U.S. Open Cup moved from a Sounders-Timbers rivalry to a Sounders-refs rivalry very quickly. Clint Dempsey went ahead and slapped the notebook out of a ref's hand while he was carding Michael Azira, then shredded it:

The Sounders tweeted this after the match.
