Timbers Preview: Portland vs. Seattle Sounders

Portland timbers logo

News
The Portland Timbers’ successful 2013 season was made all the sweeter for the team’s fans by the fact that it came so ostentatiously at the expense of the Seattle Sounders. The Timbers trounced their bitterest rival in the 2013 playoffs, the high point of the season.

Then again, maybe that weak mentality is why I never made it as a soccer player.
