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?
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!
