The Timbers lose a true fan
We were all deeply saddened to learn that Paula, a devoted Timbers fan since the NASL days, passed away on Tuesday morning of heart failure. Paula was familiar to all of us as the redhead who sat at the top of section 107 with her sister Gisele, and was as faithful a Timbers fan as you'll ever want to meet. She will be deeply missed by everyone connected to the Timbers, and the Timbers are supposed to honor Paula before the Timbers/Whitecaps game on Thursday. Condolences are being posted at the link listed below, and please wear a black armband to the game on Thursday in honor of Paula.
n, it's being reported that the Timbers will open their season on Thursday, May 1 against the Sounders, followed by a return game in Seattle the next day. The A-League schedule is supposed to be released on Thursday, January 23.
