Portland Timbers Win MLS First Kick 2012

The first MLS game of the season is over and soccer…errr futbol fans across the country are excited. The fastest growing sport in America is back for another season and everyone got to watch my Portland Timbers beat Stale Gum’s Philadelphia Union, 3-1.

While it should of been at least 5-0, an own goal and some luck played into Philadelphia’s only success this match.

And for those who don’t follow the MLS, the fans in Portland are the best fans in the league bar none. And I’m not just saying that because I live in Portland.

So I’m going to show off something I don’t show off enough of on this blog, a soccer…errr futbol trading card!

While it’s not of my new hero Kris Boyd, my UCONN soccer player Andrew Jean-Baptiste, or Kalif Alhassan, all of whom scored goals tonight, it is of Timbers goalie Troy Perkins who had a great game in the box.

I definitely need to start grabbing some base cards for my PC of Portland Timbers players. I think this card may be the first off my list. Look at that awesome action shot!

Portland really is Soccertown, U.S.A.
