That guy over there is Timber Joey. He is — quite literally — the Portland Timbers’ mascot. He stands in front of the supporters section at home games and slices off a piece of that huge log for every Portland goal. Timbers fans then toast him with organic fermented tofu beer made with non-flourinated water.

Seriously though, Portland is a really good team (and they provided the feel-good moment of the sports year so far).

The Timbers make just their second-ever visit to PPL Park tonight (0-0 draw in September, 2011) for a huge game against the Union (7:30 p.m. — Comcast SportsNet). Philly’s should-be-All-Star Jack McInerney returns to action after being released from U.S. National Team duty at the Gold Cup.
