#45 Attend a Timbers Game

This is part of our 100 Things in 2014 challenge. Here’s the full list.

I took Will to a Timbers game once, but Becky’s never been. We scored some tickets on StubHub (which were heavily subsidized by Liz and Jeff’s generous Christmas gift!), and made our way to Jeld-Wen Field Providence Park.

To our utter surprise, the place was packed. It turns out our rival team from the great white north was in town for the big showdown. Apparently this rivalry has [some history][rivalry] that we were unaware of until we couldn’t hear each other talk, even from the absolute highest seats in the stadium.

Neither of us is much for sports, but we both had a great time. The game ended in a tie, but we both feel like we won.
