If you're going to take your time in scoring your first goal for the club that made you the highest paid player in MLS, the final match of the regular season is probably as good a moment as any to finally do it.

Clint Dempsey put Seattle up 1-0 on the LA Galaxy in the 30th minute by finishing a cross with a nice side-footed touch that Galaxy keeper Jaime Penedo couldn't handle. He then calmly celebrated by tapping his invisible watch and motioning for Seattle fans to play it cool. It was his first goal since returning to MLS in August and gave Seattle hope of snapping a six-match winless streak before the playoffs begin.

Robbie Keane equalized for LA in the 78th minute, but LA should have had a goal before that if MLS had goal line technology or officials with eyesight.
