Axe Society, 8.18.17

As part of our inaugural group of ticket holders, Jenny and her daughter Heidi won the chance to have a VIP experience for the Portland Timbers vs. New York Red Bulls match, including KeyBank Club seats, and a chance to visit with Timber Joey on the field!


We asked Jenny a few questions after the match.


What was your first memory of/first match supporting the Timbers?
"
Though I had gone to games with my children years earlier, I will never forget the Timbers’ opening home match as a new MLS club.  The roar of the fans was unending, as was the rain; everyone stayed on their feet for the entire 90 minutes and the atmosphere was electric. I had never experienced anything quite like it and the feeling has stayed with me ever since."


What was your favorite moment of the match tonight?
"
Do I really have to pick just one? OK, I have to go with Valeri’s goal, though Attinella’s brilliant save is a very close second."


Who would you nominate as Player of the Match?  
"
Jeff Attinella!"


What is your prediction for the next MLS match – Timbers versus Colorado Rapids?
"
Timbers with the win, by 2 goals.  OK lads, I’m counting on you!"


What else should we know about your Timbers fandom? Any favorite pieces of Timbers memorabilia?
"
I’m so proud to be a Timbers fan - win or lose, every Timbers game is a highlight on my calendar!  I don’t have any game day superstitions, but I make sure I always wear something green.  My favorite memorabilia is the new plaque I got as part of the Axe Society Member of the Match experience on Friday (thank you!)"

Congratulations Jenny and Heidi! And thank you for your continued support!
