Timbers Tid Bits: Vancouver Away Edition

Are you traveling up to Vancouver, BC this weekend to go to Sunday's game? If so, both myself and fellow editor Will Conwell will be milling about. While we'll have press passes, we each have our own TA tickets as well so you can expect us to be in the midst of the crowd for the duration of the game singing, chanting and generally showing Vancouver what a real supporters group can do!

I'm personally planning on heading up tomorrow afternoon and making a weekend out of it. I haven't been to Vancouver since 2005 so it'll be nice to see the city once again and partake in their mediocre and expensive beer. Wait did I say "nice?"

Seriously, I'm really looking forward to it! If you're going as well, let me know in the comments!
