We should still have another preview piece for you later tonight, but before that hits I wanted to bring up the discussion of the Cascadia Cup, once again, ahead of our first Cascadia Cup match tomorrow. Since this regional rivalry is so important, at least in terms of bragging rights, I'm genuinely curious to see where it stands with you in the grand scheme of the season.

Personally, I've continually stated since the pre-season this year that my goal for the Portland Timbers was for them to bring home at least one trophy: MLS Cup, Supporters' Shield, U.S. Open Cup or the Cascadia Cup. To me, at this point, each one of them is an important trophy. I won't say it's more or less important than the others, but I believe, in terms of being proud of the team we have, this regional trophy would be an important asset heading into the off season later this year.

So, with that said, I would like you guys to take a moment and discuss the trophy, its meaning to you, the team and/or the region as a whole. Why (or why not) is it important? Would you consider this a successful season if the Timbers brought home the Cascadia Cup this year, but missed every other benchmark, including the play offs?
