I don’t know about you, but I was more than a little stressed out for 70-80 minutes of this match. Timbers vs Dynamo on 6-26-16.
The Timbers Army board announced today that the Portland Boys chant will not be featured or initiated by the Timbers Army, effective immediately. It’s no hard to understand why the chant was eliminated even if you disagree. The specific line I will miss from this chant is not the controversial one, but the one that gave me juvenile glee in hearing on national TV. Can you hear the TA sing (“Portland Boys?”) I DON’T HEAR A FUCKING THING!
If I have a home game still on the DVR, I’ll see if I can find and capture that part of the chant for the sake of (rude) history.
I just barely managed to catch a picture of the Timbers Army marching in the 2016 Pride parade. As usual, the TA made us proud. Catch a little video after the jump. UPDATE: Timbers Army posted a link to some photos by Ray Terrill.
Some might call it opportunism, but most members of the Timbers Army probably have a lot more colorful words to describe an individual who buys items from the No Pity Van and then resells them on Ebay with an exorbitant markup. Everything shown here from Scotishstriker’s Ebay listing is still or recently available direct form the source. Those patches retail for $5, while scarves are only $10 from the van. I’ve heard of people listing TA items at retail just to combat the Ebay profiteers.
The most gracious man in the MLS has donated the ball he used to score the MLS Cup record setting 27 second goal to the Timbers Army. The images above are from the video and picture in the Timbers Army post that broke the news. Is it possible to retire a jersey number while the player is still playing? Let’s do it! Have you seen the fan-created patch that commemorated the event? Catch the patch and a replay of the goal after the jump.
