Timbers Tid Bits: Elimination Edition

Well the Portland Timbers were officially eliminated last night by an own goal by the Philadelphia Union. Quite a disappointment if you ask me, but ultimately after giving up two very important home wins to San Jose and Houston it probably should have been expected.

So tomorrow is the final Portland Timbers game of the season. Unfortunate but true. We'll plan on following the play-offs here on Stumptown Footy, as well as continuing our amazing editorial coverage so I hope you guys will stick around.... Seriously it's gonna be amazing!

In the mean time, enjoy today's links!
