Last Results: Won, 2-0 vs Sacramento Republic

Matt Bird gives us the lowdown on our opponent:

Despite seasons past Timbers 2 have improved greatly. I’ve only watched one of their games this season which was their midweek game where they put Sacramento Republic to the sword and were the first team to beat them this season.

So as coach Pulis said on our pod, this isn’t the old Timbers team we’re used to.
We’ve only played T2 once before. We beat them 1-0 on a dodgy penalty a few years ago.
We’re pretty good at 1-0 wins so I’d take another tomorrow.

Charity Du Jour:

This week is Autism Speaks.  Let’s keep our strong donations going this week to celebrate those who are helped by this foundation.
The charitable givings of our group was noted in an article this week by the USL:

Louligan Cartels:

Drums and capos: We march in 1/2 hour before kickoff. Anyone can join the march in! Drummers usually need assistance carrying in the drum stands, so if you can help out, see them as they organize prior to the march.

Tailgate: Happy Cinco de Mayo!  To celebrate, the tailgate is having a taco/nacho bar and margaritas!  A recommended donation is $5; you can pay them cash, or pay at the merchandise stand.

Newligans: If you’re new and this is your first game day, say hi! There will be several of our Newligan Cartel walking around, wearing badges showing their name on it.  Feel free to grab one of them and introduce yourself; they’re wearing that badge as a way to indicate they’re there to help you join the crowd.  There will be a Newligans table by the trailer in case you don’t see a badged member.
You also can exchange your ticket at their table for a wristband for the march in, so we can proceed through the gate more efficiently.

Merchandise: We will have the 2018 Louligan scarves and the 2018 This Is Silly! Podcast scarves.  if you pre-ordered one, you’ll be able to pick it up.  If you didn’t and you want to get one, we will have extras for sale.  $20 per scarf, cash or credit.  There aren’t many left of the podcast scarves, so get them while you can!

The red line will be the march to the game.  The march starts 30 minutes before kickoff (7:00pm).
