Timbers Tid Bit: Deflated Edition

This weekend was not a particularly joyful time for me. I suppose that will happen when you almost simultaneously watch your home team lose 4 - 0 and then a few minutes later watch as your national team loses 4 - 2 in the final of a very important tournament. The proverbial cherry on top was when the New England Revolution failed to do anything but suck against the Seattle Sounders gracing our northern neighbors with 3 additional points. Rough stuff...

Luckily it's a new week and with a new week comes the opportunity to look ahead and forget the woes of the past. Also we get a home game this Saturday so that'll be fun, as it always is.

Enjoy the morning news!
