Trip to Qwest Field: "We Are Timbers Army" video included

I had the good fortune to take the trip to Seattle yesterday. Man, what a blast. I recommend that you join the Timbers Army and go on these road trips. We killed the keg by the rest stop in Centralia on the Lompoc Brewery bus. Thanks for the Kick Axe Lompoc guys!

From Flounder pinnate, to singing "We Are Timbers Army" as we entered Qwest Field to watching dissappointed and angry Seattle fans walk off with a draw on their home field, it was all great fun. Look for TA members that were on the Lompoc bus in an upcoming adidas ad as there was a director there shooting ofr the commercial set. It is a new light bright blue shoe.

I must say the rain probably quieted us down a little bit, but not much.

Here is some video from the tunnel entering Qwest Field, this will pump any Timbers Fan UP!!!:

 

Some observations. Gotta give The Emerald City Supporters Group some credit, that was some massive tifo. Honeslty though it was pretty unoriginal, very professionally produced and did not work immediately as it got tangled up. For a minute or two there I thought it said "Decades of Finance" which was puzzling. Does their FO make this for them?

Their actual supporters section is shockingly small. There is the entire south end dedicated to the supporters group, but really only the section behind the goal is the only active section. The Timbers Army at home truly does blow these guys out of the water. No contest.

We were loud we were proud the entire match from pre-game to our exit about 1/2 an hour after the match. The only time we could here the Shittle fans at all was on their "Shittle - Flounders" thing and "You Suck A**hole" on goalie kicks. That really is pathetic when you consider there was only 500 hundred of us, 36,000 other people should have been able to drown us out easily.

Anyway the recap posted was quite good, although I thought Nagbe had a better night than he got credit for in that write up, otherwise I agree with that assessment. It did feel that the game was a bit rigged because, in the second half, there was a foul call on every Shitle dive (a dive allowed them to keep possession on the score). Our players were a little tentative out of the gate in the second half, but the ref contributed to that.

Having watched the game on DVR, I am not so sure, but that Cooper drag down in the box sure looked as if we should have been awarded a PK there too. It felt sort of rigged at that point.

The goal shook them out of it though. It really was a good match. I will definitely take the point, can't wait till July to put 3 points up on them!

 

Futty is the man. Anyone know any football chants from Gambia?

Alright guys, I don't believe I have to say this but, just in case, please do not submit anything racist, homophobic, sexist or otherwise not appropriate for even the younger Timbers fans.
