Last Night's Party: Portland Edition



This is last night's match in Portland plus surrounding ambiance that form the "Portland experience." Quality video, especially considering that it was shot, edited and released in 18 hours.

Also impressive is Portland's home undefeated streak. They have a hell of a long way to go before they hit Rio Tinto territory but it's a pretty damn good start to their first MLS campaign.

Amazing.

How come there were two timber slices at the end? There was just one goal in the game, no?

Or does Timber Joey do one for a game victory as well?

We saw slices for goals and for shutouts.

Quality. The Timbers addition to MLS is like the public school kid who smokes and gets girls numbers transferring to a small Catholic school. I hope one day Nike comes back to MLS and invests the same cash into the Timbers that they put into U of O.

What are they doing to the plastic grass in the beginning?

They are mowing/trimming the turf. It is a new kind of hybrid field turf/grass that grows through a chemical regiment.

@ JL, watering the field. It actually helps the rubber hold together better and help the ball sit better. They do it per Spencer's orders.
