UPDATE: The contest is over; and a winner has been selected. I will announce the winner once I have successfully contacted him or her. Thanks!
On Saturday, July 17th 2010, I’ll be dressed in grey slacks and a long sleeve white shirt, probably sweating in sweltering heat, at an undisclosed location on Sauvie Island; one of my best friends is getting married. I’ve known the guy since first grade. I don’t think I can get out of it 😉
But my obligation is your gain – I have a pair of tickets I can’t use to the Portland Timbers friendly against Manchester City at Merlo Field on the campus of the University of Portland, on the same day.
Merlo Field is tiny, so as you probably already know, tickets to this match are exclusively available to season ticket holders. Behold, I am a full-season ticket holder, and I possess a pair of Game C tickets. And I want to give these two tickets to you.
The mechanics of this contest are simple:
- Leave a comment below* before midnight (Portland, Oregon time) on Saturday, June 26th
- In the comment tell us who your favorite Portland Timbers player is (a player on the roster as of the date you post your comment)
- On Sunday, June 27th I will randomly draw a name from the pool of commenters who followed the rules above
After the drawing I will deliver the tickets to the winner. (Hopefully at a Timbers match before July 17th, but I will Fedex or mail the tickets if necessary.)
* You do not need to use your real name when you comment, but you must leave a valid email address so that I can contact you if you win. I won’t use the email addresses for anything else. Ever. Also, don’t panic (or re-comment obsessively) if your comment does not appear instantly; the first comment per email address goes into moderation. I will try to approve them in a timely manner.

Hope you have fun at the wedding!
My favorite player is Alex Nimo.
rope yarn! ahem, i mean ryan pore
I will offer a favorite on behalf of @cooking asshole: Brian Farber. No one can outrun that dude. NO ONE. And he like, flies through the air with his orange shoes and like, kicks stuff.
Um, I would have to say Alex Nimo. Trying to drag the guy off the field is highlight of the season so far.
Alex Nimo. Benson represent!
I <3 Stephen Keel.
As the friend who caused your distress, I can swiftly relieve you of your obligation on the 17th.
Timber Jim count? if not Takayuki Suzuki
Ian Joy, Superstar
Mike Donovan says
Cronin. I have a soft spot for keeps 🙂
Steve Cronin. #0!!
After yesterday, it’s Ryan Pore!
This is hard. I have 4 favorites! I would have to say, as of this very moment, it would have to be Dike as he made my heart sing at last week’s match against Kitsap….
Sorry, drawing for tickets already occurred!
My boys play varsity soccer at Sprague High School and would love to see the game.
PLEASE PICK MY NAME 🙂
@Shortcake – this contest was *last* summer . . . but stay tuned: more tickets giveaways to come this year!
