If you're like most Timbers fans I know, you're also likely a Trail Blazers fan. As the debut MLS campaign approaches, the TA will be strategically grouped throughout the Rose Garden this Sunday night to cheer on the other pro sports team in town while making a good impression on the Blazers' faithful.
The game will be nationally televised on ESPN, tipping off at 7:30 pm. If you're going to the game, make sure to wear your TA gear (which goes great with Blazers gear) and represent the TA in a positive manner. For those who bought tickets through the TA special promotion, don't forget to meet up after the game to shoot free throws on the court. (Check your inboxes for a 2/23 email with those details.)
BONUS: if all goes according to plan, Sunday night's game will also be the debut of recently-acquired Gerald Wallace. Looks to be a barn burner. See ya' there!
