According to a report from Nigel Jaquiss of the Willamette Week, the Portland Timbers are looking to add 1,000-2,000 more seats to the South End of Providence Park in the next several years.

There are several hurdles for the team to clear before any work could be done. The addition would have to make sense from an economic perspective for the team, but also would need approval from the city and from the Multnomah Athletic Club.

It wasn't a great performance overall from my perspective (Timbers Army) so in the end I have to give it to the goalscorer. Montreal's defense was rock solid all night long and it took an impressive run/slide by Ryan to finally pull one back for the Timbers.

Three Magnets Brewing, a brewery based in Olympia, recently put out a beer called "Deuce Juice." It's a play on Clint Dempsey's nickname and jersey number. It's apparently a pretty decent IPA, too.

The rather hilarious nature of the name aside, this beer is perhaps more notable because of the reaction it got from Timbers fans, who were apparently quite displeased to find it being sold near Providence Park.

"Perkins, Perkins! Give us a wave!" The loud booming chant by the Timbers Army was heard well enough by Troy Perkins as he wandered over to his net by the Timbers Army. After about 15 seconds, Perkins glanced over his shoulder and gave a small wave... From my view in section 108, I would say that Perkins' wave was almost reluctant.
