So Now What Happens? Gee, That Was A Quick Response

So now what happens? Well, I got this email tonight to be at this location at the time, and I think you'll see history in the making:

It has come to our attention that there will be a very important announcement this Friday with the Portland Timbers and and MLS representatives.

  • What: Rally and Press Conference Announcement
  • When: 9:30 a.m., Friday March 20
  • Where: Portland Hilton, 921 SW Sixth Avenue, Portland Oregon
  • What we need to do: We need to take what we did with the MLS to PDX rally and be even louder, prouder, more drums, and even more noise. It looks like this is going to be the CELEBRATION we have all been waiting for! Our goal is 300 people for this event wearing your green and white plus as many scarves as we can muster.

Arrive early to claim your flag, banner, drum etc. As always, the Timbers Army and Timbers fans will play a prominent part in any announcement. Do whatever it takes to join us, and be a part of history.

Gee, I posted something on the blog, and now all I can say is wow!!! It's simply amazing that this has gone from a pipe dream to potential reality in a matter of weeks. And Friday's match at the Bluff is going to be insane, and I'll post something over the weekend talking about. Right now, though, I just want to sit back and be happy. Because the wait is over, and MLS will learn what the Rose City is all about!!

I got the news first here, GK, not even on the boards. See what RSS can do for you? ^_^
So excited - just asked to get a couple of hours off of work to slip next door to hear the announcement.
