When it comes to the National Anthem, Portland Timbers fans don’t screw around

As the Portland Timbers mulled who they would get to sing the National Anthem for their first-ever MLS game on Thursday, they had an epiphany. Why not let their fans do it? And so, apparently inspired by the Edmonton Oilers, the Timbers Army was tasked with putting on a show, and they didn’t disappoint. Portland’s first MLS game started with a bang.



If you’re wondering how a thing like this gets organized, here’s a clue. One of the things I love about the MLS is that they’ve managed to import the European tradition of rabid fan support, minus the hooliganism. The Timbers Army has already proven to be one of the great fan organizations, and they got themselves ready for this. Oh, and the Timbers won at newly renovated Jeld-Wen Field, 4-2, over the Chicago Fire.

I was there Thursday night, in the Timbers Army section and it was amazing! People who think the U.S. doesn't care about football should take a look at the Pacific Northwest. People were lined up outside the stadium since the morning, Timbers Army was chanting hours before the game started and throughout the whole match. I'm just really happy to live in a city where people are so passionate about football and their team. Rose City 'Til I Die!
