Timbers Take The Next Step


After the awful job marketing the Portland Timbers with their new, cartoony logo this summer, hopes were not high in P-town for the unveiling of the beloved team's new jerseys. However, the folks at adidas have stepped it up and delivered designs that are both classic and Euro, with some NW personality as well. Color me impressed and eager to don the new jersey as I take my place in a renovated PGE Park this spring. Here's an in-depth view of what I'm looking forward to seeing on the pitch:

I'm glad they are not using the moss green too much, as it appears too neon and Sounders-esque, and that's never a good thing in the heated NW rivalry. And Rose-City Red! I love it, possibly due in part to it reminded me of the Arsenal.

While I attended the well-executed unveiling of the jersey in person at the Alaska Airlines hanger at Portland International Airport, my iPhone photos leave a bit to be desired. I did capture a bit of video which shows off the first-class presentation, and a jet any Timbers supporter would be proud to fly in. Maybe I can take it to see the Timbers/Union fixture at PPL Park? It's on!
