but I also just deeply love the game and the club and I know that we can't win every single trophy every single year until the end of time. In fact, for me, the struggle makes the game worth watching and the heartbreak makes the successes that much sweeter.
I always have been and always will be biased and think the Timbers are the best, even when they're not. No, I'm not one of those optimists that think we always have a chance when we don't, or think we're doing well when we're not or that players and admins are beyond reproach and criticism. Absolutely not. But I'm always going to be a Timbers supporter, whatever year it is, however much we suck. I'm always going to be proud of the Timbers because to me, it's not "they" who suck, it's "we"; that's what RCTID means to me.
RCTID means something to me. Bury me in Green and Gold means something to me. And maybe that kind of passion is considered maudlin or "ignorant" or unpopular, but I really give no f**ks.
