A Timbers Experience


Up in Portland, my daughter took me to my first Portland Timbers game and I must say that it was an interesting experience.

Providence Park in home to the MLS Portland Timbers and has a long and storied history. It has been the home to many Portland teams since 1926. including the USFL's Portland Breakers in 1985. It has been renovated many times, the last being in 2019:

And the fan experience is truly amazing. The people of Portland love their MLS team:

The dude cuts that log with a chainsaw

When the Timber score, they release green smoke into the air

Here is a video I shot of the Timbers player announcements and the fans were like that the whole game:

I didn't take any action shots but here is how the pitch looked from our seats:

Going to the Portland Timbers match was an experience as I hadn't been to a soccer match in years. I felt like I was in Europe as the Portland fans got so into their team.
