Portland Timbers MLS

Portland Timbers MLS - As of July 26 the Portland Timbers had a 6-10-3 win loss tie record, for 21 points and 8th place in the MLS Western Conference. Jack Jewsbury is in New York as a first-time member of the MLS All-Star team. Jewsbury is enjoying a career year with the Timbers with a team-best five goals and six assists.

In the early days of the NASL club, the Timbers started a unique and beloved game-day tradition that continues to this day - the cutting of the "log slab." After each goal scored at home by the Timbers, a round is cut from the victory log behind the north goal. Amidst a cloud of sawdust and the roar of a chainsaw, fans celebrate. This time-honored tradition has helped make Timbers matches a one-of-a-kind soccer experience in the United States. Spanning multiple generations, the Timbers have been a proud part of the Portland sports landscape and are supported by fans second-to-none. As the club elevates to Major League Soccer in 2011 and begins a new era of top-flight soccer in the Rose City, the Timbers aim to continue their traditions and commitment to excellence, on and off the field: Portland Timbers Merchandise
