The Waiting-In-Line Experience. Forbes.com sees Timbers upping the game

By Brian Costello

Waiting in line. It can bond people together. Timbers fans have been known to wait in line for hours, sometimes even days, to get their preferred seat before a game. It's a situation that people run across at Disneyworld, music festivals, and the like.

But here at JELD-WEN Field, that line waiting sometimes comes with some benefits. Forbes.com writes in a recent article about the re-imagning of the line waiting experience and how the Timbers are doing it a bit differently

Major League Soccer executives are upping their game when it comes to line management. The league’s Portland Timbers club, for instance, handed out free Stumptown coffee and pizza, and a few of the team’s players joined fans waiting in line to sign autographs. The Timbers club’s owner Merritt Paulson even personally delivered coffee and doughnuts to line waiters during one cold morning.

So who knows? Next time in line, you never who you may run into.
