Timbers Tid Bits: MLS Cup Champions Edition

Congratulations to the Los Angeles Galaxy for winning MLS Cup. There I said it. Can we just move on already?

For those of you who watched the game, I'm sorry. It wasn't exactly an enthralling game was it? Of course most MLS Cup matches aren't so I suppose it really was no surprise. Still, Beckham has his trophy, LA finally proved they can win the big enchilada so good for them. On to 2012!

As we enter into December (the lull for MLS news) I'll be looking up and researching possible SuperDraft picks. So stay tuned for that. In the mean time, some links for you!
