Timbers Tid Bits: Home Game Edition

Tonight is the first home game since August 24th. That was over three weeks ago! I think I'm starting to go through some serious withdrawals. Thankfully, tonight's game followed by next Wednesday's San Jose Earthquakes home game should help alleviate any symptoms. I got the shakes real bad...

On a more realistic note, it'll be awesome to get back into the Timbers Army section tonight. I'm really looking forward to seeing how the stadium withstands the added pressure from ~2000 extra fans. If it does well, we could see this as the regular attendance for next year. Exciting!

I'll have the match thread and match preview up a little later today. Until then, enjoy the morning news!
