The Timbers Army does some things pretty well.We make a ruckus, we do chants, and we create the atmosphere for the stadium. On Thursday April, 14 we have been chosen to do something rare in sport across America. We all know it’s usually a celebrity that sings the National Anthem for big events. Who could forget Whitney Houston killing the game at the Super Bowl in 1991?
Absolutely incredible. I still remember that performance vividly from when I was younger.
Other countries have had very memorable anthem performances that give me chills. Take a couple of minutes and watch the Canadian National Anthem being sung by the crowd in Edmonton.
Oilers fans kind of give you chills with that don’t they?
I am honored and extremely pleased to announce to the Timbers Army and the world that the Timbers Army has been selected to sing the United States National Anthem against the Chicago Fire in the inaugural home game at Jeld-Wen Field for the 2011 season.
What does this mean for you? Clear your throats. Drink warm tea with honey. Protect your throats. On Thursday April 14, 2011 you are singing the National Anthem on ESPN.
Follow the capos for instruction. Learn the words. At the end of the National Anthem we have a tifo display planned. There will be some obstructed views in the Timbers Army section. We appreciate you reading and participating in the instructions that will be taped to your seat.
Tomorrow, what to expect if it’s your first time…
