Congratulations to our June 1st Axe Society Members of the Match – Bill and Janine Kanable!

Bill and Janine recognized at Whitecaps match

As part of our inaugural group of ticket holders, Bill and Janine won the chance to have a VIP experience for the Portland Timbers vs. Vancouver Whitecaps match on June 1st, including KeyBank Club seats, and a chance to visit with Timber Joey on the field!

We asked Bill a few questions after the match.

What was your first memory of/first match supporting the Timbers?

Coming into Portland from Hood River to watch the Timbers play in 1978.  I was one of the few at the time that played high school soccer in Oregon.

What was your favorite moment of the match today?

Will Johnson’s goal

Who would you nominate as Player of the Match?  

Will Johnson

What is your prediction for the next match – Timbers versus Real Salt Lake?

2-1 Timbers

What else should we know about your Timbers fandom? Any favorite pieces of Timbers memorabilia?

I started wearing a green kilt to games.  We like to sit in section 108, near the front.  And I love to wear my Timbers watch!

I have volunteered as a rec soccer coach for 16 years, served on the rec clubs board for 14 years, and still coach, even with my son being twenty-one and my daughter twenty.  My son is a referee, my daughter plays for Concordia Women’s team, and my wife, Janine, understands offsides.

Congratulations Bill and Janine! And thank you for your continued support!
