    How do you feel about your club?

    Portland Timbers: As is 6/10, if we get and stay healthy 8/10. The team has been CRUSHED by the injury bug lately, and it's no fun. But the next home game will be 80% capacity so as a season ticket holder I'm excited to be able to be there and be LOUD in support of the team. Portland Thorns...

    The best you ever had?

    Brain Gant was one of my PE teachers in middle and high school. This was at least a decade after he'd retired, but he was still so good. I remember we'd be playing full filed soccer games with several balls on the field (and ~30 total people) at once. He would stand at midfield and if the ball...

    MLS 2021: On a scale of 1-10, my baby's 26

    The Timbers beat LA (who doesn't like to type that) Galaxy 3-0 today. Second win in a row without Diego Chara, a few years ago I never would have thought that was possible. The Timbers have played well against LAG lately. View: https://twitter.com/TheMikeDonovan/status/1396220126051983360...

    Les Athlétisme de Montréal or The Vegas Aces?

    The AAA Beavers and USL Timbers shared a stadium until 2010. It has been renovated (twice) into a soccer only stadium. Merritt Paulson, the Timbers owner (and Beavers at the time) tried to build a new stadium for the Beavers. It would have been expandable to MLB size if needed. The sites would...

    Les Athlétisme de Montréal or The Vegas Aces?

    Portland has a group that is trying to get a stadium deal together, but they have not gotten anything concrete done. The one slightly serious plan does not have good transit access (at the moment), and has a lot of the issues the the Oakland site does. It's pretty much in the middle of an...

    It was so great to be back in the stadium. They did a pretty good job with keeping people distant. In the old lower bowl and all of the new sections where there are actual seats the ones they didn't want anyone in. The upper sections of the old bowl are benches so those were just taped off, but...

    1pm Eastern (10am local) the Thorns hold Gotham FC in the NWSL Challenge Cup Final. Will be broadcast live on CBS. I am fully vaccinated so I got a ticket and am heading to the stadium shortly. As a Thorns fan I hope the 15% capacity crown will help them win, but as a NWSL supporter I hope we...

    MLS 2021: On a scale of 1-10, my baby's 26

    Timbers get a win over Houston with some heavy squad rotation due schedule congestion with the CCL this week. Beautiful second goal here: View: https://twitter.com/TimbersFC/status/1386171741915860993

    MLS 2021: On a scale of 1-10, my baby's 26

    the second left between Timbers and Marathón kick off in about 40 minutes. First leg was 2-2 which puts the Timbers in a pretty good position. Considering players health the Timbers are going with a pretty strong lineup, and I believe the same one as the first leg. View...

    dirtynine's Digest - The Thread for Kits

    They included Portland and Seattle in these. I love it. As someone from the PNW I would like to have seen Vancouver included too.

    MLS 2021: On a scale of 1-10, my baby's 26

    The Timbers are going to be capped at ~6300 to start. I've probably been to about 20 Timbers matches with fewer people in the stadium, but those were ~12 years ago in the USL, and there were still 1k people crammed together in the North End and we were able to get chants going. I know none of...

    Let's Talk About MLBTV

    I just got my email for 2021 MLBtv subscription. Still $129.99 for the full season. But if you rolled over last year's payment you have a credit of $76.81 so the cost this year is $53.18. I've been paying for the service since it was MLBAudio in 1998 or 1999, so it feels odd to drop it after...
