Sorry for the break in your usual Timbers Tid Bits. Apparently Google decided to update their Google Reader RSS feed which, as it so happens, completely borked my browser making it impossible for me to read my own news. Since I get most of my news from my Google Reader feed it put a damper on my ability to find and share the news with you guys.
Anyway, it's all better now, Google pushed an update through and you can expect regular TTBs once again!
Also, we'll have our usual play off recaps done by tomorrow. There are two very large games tonight with the second halves of the Los Angeles Galaxy vs. New York Red Bulls and Houston Dynamo vs. Philadelphia Union games coming to a head.
Enjoy your morning news!
