The next Timbers game isn't until September 10th. That's almost two weeks away. So what should we Timbers-loving folk do until then to pass the time? The obvious answer is, of course, to get deeply ingrained in one of the many fine European leagues that just recently started this month. However, I have a better proposition...
This Thursday at 7:30 PM the Portland Timbers reserves will take on the LA Galaxy reserves at 7:30 PM. Tickets are only $10 and, given the length of the break, I'm fairly certain we'll see quite a few Timbers starting eleven players out there. Should make for a great game!
Enjoy your morning news.
