Think you’re a sports fan? “Ha!” says the Timbers Army as they sing the National Anthem. 18


One of the exciting moments prior to the start of major sporting events is the singing of the National Anthem.  While various artists put their own spin on the singing of the song, it’s often the fans that create the atmosphere that can leave you with goose-bumps before a major event.  


 

So, you think your team has loyal fans?  Check out this group!  What started as a small group of fans in section 107 of Jeld-Wen Field in Portland, Oregon has grown in to The Timbers Army , a raucous group of fans who support the Portland Timbers, a MLS football (soccer) club.  So, how did these fans pull together on the very first home game for the Timbers?  You be the judge…
(and No, this is not London, England nor Barcelona, Spain….but Portland, Oregon!).
