For better or for worse, this is a completely different season than last year. The 2013 Timbers exceeded the expectations of those wearing the most Rose City colored glass. The boys in Green and Gold/White entered 2014 with expectations of challenging class teams like RSL as well as the untermenschen 185 miles north on I-5 for MLS supremacy.
That hasn't quite happened yet.
But one thing that has happened every week is the same determined group of opininated and even occasionally informed bloggers/commentors have littered STF with their views of what it takes for Rose City to place their first star over the logo. Right or wrong, we care not. We fire our electronic opinions into the blogosphere with only the hope that someone will reply or rec the thread.
Will, Stacey, crew... it's time. We need another STF meet and greet (and eat and drink, too!). It took a while to break the ice last year, but by the end we were Tetris-ing, singing 'Your are my sunshine' and ' I can't help falling in love' as if we were at the Stadium.
The on the field magic is beginning to come around. What the hey... is it time to try for the 2nd Annual STF Viewing Party?
