Dirty Dozen

Okay, okay. We can finally talk about it. It's been long enough since the 5-0 home debacle that I actually forgot (for a couple of minutes yesterday) who the team was that handed Portland its worst home loss in history. It really does feel like an eternity since that match, the obvious product of the 12-day break between games.

Over said eternity, the Timbers made some interesting and undoubtedly difficult roster moves, dropping Aaron Heinzen and S. Saunders. Both will be missed for the quality and unique people they are, if not for their abilities on the pitch. Heinzen's athleticism and Saunders' toughness could prove difficult to replace.

The Sunday after the debacle may have been Father's Day, but I half expected my two and a half year old daughter to skip past the happy dad's day greeting an ask me the same question a zillion other people did that day, i.e. What happened to the Timbers last night? The clinical answer would have been to say the worse home loss in team history, but mostly I opted for the glass half full response of as bad as the score was, it's only one game and the team is still in second place. Now if Montreal comes to PGE on Thursday and brings a whooping stick, I may have to adjust my sunny view.

All and all, this has been a rough month and July can't come soon enough. I'm starting to wonder if either Heinzen or Aaran Lines found a Tiki idol in Puerto Rico (like Greg Brady did in Hawaii) and failed to return it to some ancient cave. Think about it - Greg nearly drowned, Lines separated his shoulder and missed a key stretch, and Heinzen was sent packing. All three had been surfing off the coast of a former or current U.S. Territory. Coincidence? I think not.
