Well it's now official. Yesterday was the very last day of the Timbers training for the year. The guys are now officially on vacation until late January when they have to report to training. Just about two months worth of time off... I'm not even sure I would know what to do with that time off.
Anyway, I'm keeping it short this morning as the US-Slovenia game is going on right now.
Enjoy your morning news!
