Welcome to the Timbers Beat

Welcome to the Timbers Beat, a new, blog-style space with inside looks at the Portland Timbers, only at www.portlandtimbers.com!

The Timbers Beat will be a place for the staff of the Timbers to sound off on life behind the scenes with the team. You'll regularly hear the latest in media news and other happenings from media relations coordinator Marc Kostic. Director of soccer business operations Brad Nicholson will keep you posted on the word from team operations and Andy McNamara will provide you with the latest stories and anecdotes from life behind the mic.

Of course, we also welcome your comments and feedback. Let us know what you're thinking, and who knows, your thoughts may make it into a future posting!

We hope that the Timbers Beat will be a new and different way to know your team, from the staff who know it the best. Be sure to check back soon for more postings.
