Timbers Tid Bits - 4/18/11

Alright, I'm gonna try this again. I always felt like compiling interesting Timbers and league news articles and editorials made for a nice ending to the day, but I eventually stopped doing it back in February. To be honest it's a lot of work compiling these articles and figuring out which ones would even be relevant so if I stop, just give me a shout and I'll start em up again.

Anyway, here's today's news.
