Tigerdroppings is an LSU message board with sections ranging from SEC Football to Politics to Recruiting to Saints.
The Soccer board is a nice collection of posters from all over the south, representing a bunch of different SEC teams. Because there is no regional MLS team, most have never been to an MLS game. Most didn't start following MLS until this year. Anyways, here are some quotes that I think show just what the fans in Portland accomplished last night:
Bravetiger225: "Seattle Fans got showed up by Timbers Army tonight"
HendersonsHands: "Half of Europe got shown up tonight. That was a hell of an atmosphere."
BleedPurpleGold: "jesus christ monkey balls. I think I just found a new favorite MLS team. That was incredible."
Senor Pablo: "Yeah my interest in the club was galvanized after what I saw. I have a feeling the Timbers gained a lot of new fans across the country just over night "
Fratastic 423: "I picked up an interest in the team when we were talking about moving there. Last night was the first time since we decided not to move that I really regretted making that call."
pdxbreaux: "Awesome night. I had chills inside the stadium multiple times not from the cold either. We've been doing this for several years now and it's awesome the rest of the country can see it finally that we're in mls."
S: "one of my good friends from back home has been living in portland for a while now, he lives about a mile from the stadium and said he could hear it inside his apartment."
Destrehan Tiger: "Seeing and hearing the Timber fans singing "Can't Help falling in Love" was pretty cool. Reminded me of YNWA."
Bravetiger225: "That was the Timbers GM that the referee was kicking out lol"
3rdRowTailgater: "I just keep loving this team more and more."
RayFinkleTTU: "This is the most fun I've had watching one half of a MLS soccer game."
MSmithDizzle: "The Timbers are so sick....ive been looking forward to this game and it definitely paid off.
Consider me a new bandwagoner, i love what Portland is doing though."
MrsMiller: "that is so cool. eta: timber joey is my idol"
tigerinstaugustine: did not really have a soccer team ever... BEFORE TONIGHT
Caplewood: "So we as a board are on the Timbers train, right? I have to get to Portland"
