PORTLAND, OR Joey Webber--otherwise known as "Timber Joey" slices "slabs" for each goal scored by the home side. The Goats will aim to keep his saw silent tonight. (Photo by Jonathan Ferrey/Getty Images)
We're just about off. Alicia is at a wedding in the Bay Area so we wish her well. In the interim, an important three points hang in the balance here. I don't think either side will be happy with a draw. In case you missed it, you can read our preview for the match. The weather is partly cloudy and it's currently just a shade below 70F.
Line-ups and all the goodies after the jump!
Portland only starting four of the players--all internationals--(Mosquera, Kimura, Chara and Songo'o) that started last week in Dallas. Brent Richards from nearby Camas, Washington is the Timbers first homegrown player and is making what I believe to be his first MLS start tonight.
Go get your popcorn!
