The Portland Timbers had a lousy season last year. They went from being MLS Champs to finishing the season without even making the play-offs. I’ve noticed this seems to happen whenever a team makes it to the top. The next season all the other teams are out to topple them and that’s exactly what happened. Worse yet, it was Seattle who won the MLS Cup this past season and we will have to put up with their gloating this season when they come to Portland.
It was still a fun season and we enjoyed almost every game. I’m concerned we will miss a few this year because my husband retired and we won’t be around as much, but we will make as many as we can, sitting in the Timbers Army section. We love the cheering and singing, but just wish we could sit down. Everyone stands for the whole game. My poor aching plantar fasciitis foot doesn’t really like that, but I’m still going.
Images were all taken after the match.
(These images were all taken with an Olympus trip 35 mm camera using ASA400 black and white film by Kodak. The trip camera is just a little point and shoot film camera and the prints are a bit grainy, but the camera is fun and light….perfect for game day)
