The international force known as the Portland Timbers (can you find the Solomon Islands?) takes on the Rochester Rhinos this Thirsty evening at PGE Park. The Rhinos lost their first two games but are a perennial power, so the team coming together badly now might finish the season strong. The Timbers are a strong team now, so they should take advantage of Rochester’s slow start.
The always amusing USL-1 schedule has been kind to the Timbers early. Saturday’s leisurely drive north to Seattle will be the first away game of the season. The Timbers don’t win often in the Jet City, but the team will be motivated to take on our arch rivals and defending USL-1 champs. Bus loads of
inebriated enthusiastic Rose City supporters will be cheering the team on.
One of those, um, enthusiastic, Rose City supporters will be yours truly. Stay tuned for the recap, though don’t expect it to be timely; I’m thinking my recovery time (gah, and Mothers Day is Sunday!) will push it out until the middle of next week . . .
