So.. in early December I made my 2013 Christmas list http://www.stumptownfooty.com/2012/12/7/3740284/my-timbers-2013-christmas-wish-list
In it I asked for 5 things (with my updates in paren's). Add or reinforce your own.
1) That Caleb Porter comes in and has enough success that the fans believe in him.... (a resounding yes, thank you).
2) That Kris Boyd would move on... (a resounding yes, thank you).
3) That the Timbers would attack up through the center... (a resounding yes. At the time we knew of Will Johnson, but didn't know of Diego Valerie. I for one love the style we're playing at this point.)
4) That the defensive line would solidify... (mostly done, beyond where I thought we would be... but I'm not saying it's done yet).
5) That the Timbers would create a festival called "Timbersfest". A 3 day event that's a combination of street fair and a couple of Timbers and Thorns games. At Christmas 20ish people loved the idea... but I haven't seen any significant discussion of it since (hint hint).
So... I'll say I got the majority of what I wanted and I'm holding out hope that #5 will happen someday....
