Paint the Town in Green and Gold

Thursday will be the biggest match in the Portland Timbers MLS existence. It’s the second and deciding leg against the hated Seattle Flounders. The Timbers have a 2-1 lead heading into the match and will be looking to step on the necks of the flopping Flounders. At this very moment Sigi Schmid, the Flounders boss, is sitting in his La-Z-Boy recliner dreaming up his latest excuse for failure. What will it be this time? Rain, the referee, or maybe he’ll blame the Pope. At this point that may be the only person he has yet to blame.

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves with visions of GAM completely losing it and being sent off with a red card. We can’t play the game ourselves. We’re just supporters. What we can do is be loud. Be louder than we’ve ever been before. This is no time to worry about your voice at work on Friday. Get yourself to the your nearest natural foods store and pick up a bottle of Singer’s Saving Grace. It works for our capos.

What’s the last thing you can do? Paint the town Green and Gold on Thursday. For those of you breaking out your paint rollers put them away because that’s not what I mean. Wear your Portland Timbers gear to work and out on the town Thursday. Let everyone know what’s happening that night. The biggest party in Portland is going down at Jeld-Wen Field and if you can’t be there get yourself to one of our 107ist partner pubs and watch. Wear your Portland Timbers gear there too. It’s our first playoff game since we’ve gone to MLS. We’ve got to bring it harder and louder than we’ve ever done it. This is on all of us. Yes that means you specifically.
