Wondolowski's record-breaking day sums up his career perfectly

At first glance, the goal that broke the MLS career scoring mark wasn't exactly the one you would want to lead a highlight reel, but the reality is Chris Wondolowski's 146th career MLS goal was quintessential Wondolowski.

Chicago goalkeeper David Ousted went up to catch a seemingly harmless ball in the penalty area but dropped it just as Wondolowski was slipping in, having continued to move even though an Ousted catch felt like a foregone conclusion. Wondolowski's hustle was rewarded with a record-breaking toe-poke.

The goal was very much a goalkeeper blunder, but also the byproduct of a player who has made a career out of chasing every loose ball and making every run.
