Women's soccer is new to Portland . . . but the Timber Army shows up
The 'Timber Army' is the fanatical fan base for the men's team, the Timbers. They're on their feet the entire game screaming. It was a great game, the Thorns won, and fun was had by all.
Good parents protect their kids hearing from the decibels generated by the Timber Army!
I think these little fans should be known as 'splinters', older kids could be'kindling', eventually they could grow up to be'timbers'.
