Tonight the Portland Timbers will face off against the San Jose Earthquakes. There will be plenty of headlines that come out of it, I'm sure, but really they won't matter all that much. You see, the following week, the Timbers have to play San Jose again. So whatever happens tonight is really just half of the full story.

Professional. It implies that somebody is not only competent at their job, but also being a paid a living wage based on that their competency. In truth, it provides an air of authenticity to anybody who is able to successfully wield it. Unfortunately, for most NWSL players that word can hardly be used.

It was the first time since the Academy's incorporation that so many of the U-16's and U-18's were invited to join the first team.
