MOTM, Timbers vs. TFC, 8.29.18

As part of our inaugural group of ticket holders, Brian and his friend Patrick won the chance to have a VIP experience for the Portland Timbers vs. Toronto FC match, including KeyBank Club seats, and a chance to visit with Timber Joey on the field!


We asked Brian and Patrick a few questions after the match.


What was your first memory of/first match supporting the Timbers?
Brian: Walked up to a summer game when I was visiting Portland in 1999, bought a couple tickets and we were hooked.


Patrick: Standing and singing in 107, especially on Thirsty Thursdays.


What was your favorite moment of the match tonight?
Brian: Chara’s goal. Such a great build up and so great that Chara put one in.


Patrick: Chara’s goal, of course


Who would you nominate as Player of the Match?  
Brian: CHARA!


Patrick: Because it was his best match of the season and his goal sealed the win – David Guzmán


What is your prediction for the next MLS match – Timbers at New England Revolution?
Brian: Timbers win 2-1, Valeri and Blanco get back to their scoring ways


Patrick: 1-nil victory . . . Armenteros


What else should we know about your Timbers fandom? Any gameday superstitions?
Brian: I wear the same scarf I bought the year we won the Cup to every game. I have the Timbers Army chanting “No Pity in the Rose City” as my ring tone on my phone.


Patrick: I will wear the exact same jersey/sock/scarf/hat combo to each match during a winning streak.

Congratulations Brian and Patrick! And thank you for your continued support!
