Army life with in the rose city

18 02 2010

Portland or “Rose city” as I call it is the home of the timbers fan club. Many people also know it as the timbers army..I am a part of the timbers army and for the four months the timbers are paying all I do is talk to my friend kc about is when the next game is or how we are going to to bump the Portland timbers up to pro soccer.

Now the army was started in 2003 by a grope called the cascade rangers, they would all go to section 107 in PGE park and they tried to recreate a European-style soccer fan club. If you dont really understand what I am talking about fallow this<a href="“> link

Every game I go is is a blast even if is a 0 to 0. The environment there is just electrifying, before you know it you will be singing along with the army and there crazy chants towards the other team such as “Rose City Till I Die” and “When I Root I Root For the Timbers” along with many more. There are also some chants we do every game. Like the you are my sunshine chant that was made up for our leader timber Jim’s daughter who had suffered from cancer.

all and all the timbers arm is fun time not matter what, if you are sitting in 107!
