Seven Minutes in (Timbers) Heaven



Portland’s debut MLS season may have come to a halt but the misty-eyed memories and goosebump-inducing flashbacks live on in Portland Timbers, We Adore You. A no-narration documentary chronicling JELD-WEN Field’s inaugural MLS match, the seven-minute film drips with both tasteful camerawork and nostalgia for the recent past. There is also a little bit of odd timing as well as opening day was 8 months ago but that is of little consequence when the finished product to so damn pretty to look at.

Add in a handful of highly-stylized Adrian Healy soundbites and the end result is something any reasonable fan of American soccer would deem worthy of watching*. Twice.

BONUS TRACK: Alaska Airlines recently did their own JELD-WEN Field opening flashback video. Watch it.

*Reasonable fan ≠ a closed-minded Sounders fan who blindly hates anything associated with Portland.

The reason for the "odd timing" is that it was part of a gift for those that renewed their season tickets.

There's nothing reasonable about the Cascadia rivalry from ANY of the three angles, so please don't act like it's just a Seattle thing :P

I'm sure you've seen as well as anyone that the "hate-of-all-things-associated" certainly comes from Portland to Seattle as well.
