Taking Making Noise To The Next Level
This footage is from last week's friendly between Portland Timbers and the EPL's Burnley. I love tradition and the fact that the Timbers have some. I'm also all for making all manner of noise behind the goal to intimidate the visitors and push on your team. Honest.
Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut....how are you going to run a live chainsaw behind the opposition keeper during free kicks? PDX you know I love you but come on now. Don't you think that's just a bit much? If we're going that far Sao Paolo should start blasting Sepultura during PK's? Or perhaps someone should let Seattle fire up a Boeing jet engine behind the touch line?
It's kinda bush-league and I'd be real curious to see if the tradition stands in 2011. But at the same time you know what? This is America and we don't really have the best history of giving a rat's ass about what the rest of the world is doing so it's keep on choppin' I guess.
