Timbers Tid Bits: Longest Week Ever Edition

John Rieger-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The New York Red Bulls mix things up in the front office and MLS goes purple.

Can you believe it's only Wednesday? Yesterday I convinced myself on numerous occasions that it was Friday. I also had a dream about this weekend's game, the first of many I'm sure. In it, a Bright Dike header was the opening goal, but a player named Flickert (a new signing, I assume) scored a brace to win it for Seattle. I can't wait to see what other versions of the match R.E.M. sleep will produce.

May the weekend come quickly. Until then, enjoy today's news.
