Sounders Ask Fans To Show Off Their Best "Deuce Face"...Timbers Fans Shit Themselves Laughing

In a marketing fail destined for a rivalry week, the Seattle Sounders earnestly asked their fans today to tweet pictures of themselves showing their best "Deuce Face" in honor of newly arrived (and unfortunately nicknamed) U.S. Men's National Team star Clint "Deuce" Dempsey.

You see, during a USMNT match against Jamaica in September, Dempsey rushed in during a brief scuffle on the pitch and showed he wasn't about to take any shit from the Raggae Boyz...by making a face that looked like he was taking a shit.

From the Sounders:

That is when he famously scrunched up his face and made a mocking gesture toward one of his Jamaican opponents in what quickly became known—and celebrated—as “Deuce Face."...The player on the other side of that now-famous face that has been mimicked and made into giant cutout posters by fans at U.S. Soccer matches was Portland Timbers forward Ryan Johnson.

In honor of that signature moment, we are offering a signed Dempsey Sounders FC jersey and two tickets to Sunday’s match against the Timbers for the best rendition of Dempsey’s Deuce Face. To enter the contest, submit photos via twitter by using the hashtag #MyDeuceFace. A winner will be selected on Saturday.

Timbers fans on Twitter, naturally, have picked up on the unfortunate hashtag and made it their own. I'm guessing none of them will be chosen to win the jersey.

Before heading to Seattle on Sunday, the Timbers host Real Salt Lake tomorrow night at Jeld-Wen Field. First kick is set for 8 p.m.
