Tough loss yesterday. No doubt about it. Going up twice and then watching the guys give up three goals, two of which should never have occurred in the first place is pretty heart wrenching. But, with all that said, it only strengthens my resolve as a Timbers fan and as a Flounders antagonist. Rose city til' I die.
It should also be said that yesterday's match was a small footnote in the history the Timbers and Sounders already have and will have in the year's to come. For those who are taking the loss especially hard just remember that there's always next year, and the year after that one, and the year after that one... and so on.
