Portland Timbers are something special

I used to write about the timbers, and though I only had two or so seasons of significant participation in the Timbers Army (I consider myself only ‘away for a bit’) I’m proud of all they do. Watch the video and spread the love.

I’m excited for home playoff match against Seattle. No doubt there are sleepless Army people creating TIFO as we speak. Rose City ’til I Die, if only by allegiance and not presence.

The United States is lucky to have a pile of excellent Football writers as well, so check it out!
