Portland Packs PGE Park



Rose City had over 15K+ souls in attendance last night for their last home game of the season (vs. Charleston Battery). And this is after gone without a win in the last seven matches. Folks, that is true passion. That is true support. Those are true fans.

Soccer City USA has an incredible photo of the scene here. Kansas City, New York, and Columbus you are officially on notice....support your local side.

It was a great night at the park and certainly showed that Portland is an excellent soccer city. One minor correction: the team had gone seven games without a win. Five of those games were ties. The Timbers are currently in second place.

The crowd was great, but weird in that it was unprecedented in more ways than one.

I was at the game. It was cheap beer night, which usually hauls in a good crowd, but 16k is not normal. Timbers Army was awesome. Time to promote the Timbers to MLS. Becks would think he was back in England.
