now the only thing shaking and flopping in Multnomah stadium are the Portland timbers! sad!

Yeah, every game sold uut and a waiting list for season tickets. A real bust

Hey John, check this out:

Jan 1975
The burgeoning North American Soccer League (NASL) offers Portland the 20th franchise for the 1975 season, bringing pro soccer to Portland for the first time.

Feb–Mar 1975
Team owners sponsor a citywide vote to name the new team. More than 3,000 people cast ballots. The top entry, “The Pioneers,” hits a snag—Lewis & Clark College has already claimed it. The nod goes to the second-place choice, “The Timbers,” recipient of just 44 votes. Phew! The Rainbows and RainDrops were close behind.

Aug 1975
In its first season, Portland charges to the NASL playoffs, packing then–Civic Stadium with up to 33,503 fans. One player says: “When you hear a roar from a crowd like we had at Civic Stadium, your body breaks out in goose bumps.” The Timbers lose the championship game; nevertheless, the press dubs Portland “Soccer City USA.”

don't care! soccer sucks!

Enough soccer for 2019! It's Play Ball time! The men are back to work while the boys play for the spring and summer (and fall, practically up to winter).

yes curojo, Americas pastime!
