Eventually, the Union found the back of the net. The stadium erupted into cheers. The Sons of Ben erupted into celebration. Blue smoke filled the River End, Tifos unraveled, high-fives and hugs were exchanged, and “DOOP,” the song sung by the Sons of Ben after every goal, filled the air. A goal meant a party in the River End. But the Sons of Ben were not done quite there. A capo pulled out a toy chainsaw, held it up in celebration, and proceeded to cut a slice from a “log” of Bimbo sandwich bread. In true Philadelphia style, the Sons of Ben made a clever mockery of Portland’s best-known tradition. Video:
The Sons of Ben were there to support their club, have a great time, and ruffle feathers! This celebration happened three more times as the Union embarrassed and dismantled Portland.
