This week I found myself in Charlotte, NC for work. On Tuesday, I received a call from the Front Office of the Portland Timbers offering me a ticket to Sunday’s MLS Cup.
A quick look on Google Maps, a call to Delta (sorry Alaska), a check on rental car prices, and now I find myself driving over the Appalachian Mountains, through North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia and into Ohio, to watch a 90 minute soccer game.
I will join 1200+ people most I barely know, and yet in the last five years I consider them some of my closest friends for a few Saturdays and Sundays each season.
I barely understand the game or how in just few years its driven me to do crazy things like this. But it is special.
Go Timbers! #RCTID
