Portland Timbers Season Opener

As we said in the welcome post, we've been thinking about starting a soccer blog for a while now. And what better time to inaugurate it than with the opening day of the Portland Timbers 2006 season?

The Timbers played their season opener against the Vancouver Whitecaps tonight in Vancouver. Lynda and I listened to the game on the webcast and unfortunately, the Timbers lost 1-0. An inauspicious beginning for both the season and our new blog. With a new coach and quite a few players who are inexperienced at this level of the game, some bumps at the beginning of the road are to be expected. Yeah, of course I'm biased, and I expect that the Timbers will get some retribution at the home opener on May 5 when they meet the Whitecaps again--putting an end to our two-year drought against our northern neighbors. Rose City Till I Die!
