Timbers Tid Bits: USWNT Edition

Big congratulations to the U.S. Women's National Team for their thrilling 3-nil blow out against the Canadian side, not that anybody expected another result in Portland. I was, unfortunately, unable to attend in person, which is a huge shame because I really enjoy women's soccer and, on many occasions, believe it brings a better, more technical game than MLS does.

Which leads me to my next point: would Portland support a WPS team? Let's say the Portland Rain (which is a fine WPSL team, mind you) was elevated to the WPS and played in Jeld-Wen Field. Would they draw well enough? I know I would love to attend regularly, especially if the team lured on the USWNT players... It just seems like for a city dubbed "Soccer City, USA" we are neglecting another amazing part of the sport: the women's game and that's something I'd like to see change. 

What do you think?

Enjoy the morning news!
