ADI BOMA YE!!

So I had a flash of inspiration last night watching our new Nigerian float like a butterfly and sting like a bee. A little background if you're not getting the reference: Muhammad Ali fought George Foreman in Zaire in 1974 in what is known as "The Rumble in the Jungle". Ali had spent months in country preparing for the fight and had really endeared himself to the people of Zaire. "Ali, boma ye" became a common phrase leading up to the fight, and was chanted by a large portion of the 60,000 in attendance. It means "Ali, kill him" in Lingala (I originally thought it was Swahili, thanks internet).

I think it would be pretty damn awesome if the TA was able to pull that one off.

Alright guys, I don't believe I have to say this but, just in case, please do not submit anything racist, homophobic, sexist or otherwise not appropriate for even the younger Timbers fans.
