For the first time ever, Portland served as host of the Major League Soccer All-Star game, where the MLS all stars defeated Germany's Bayern Munich Football Club. From the reports of players and broadcasters, Merritt Paulson's Timbers and Thorns put on a rousing success. Paulson had some great things to say on twitter.
Timbers coach Caleb Porter was obviously having a great time as well.
The Thorns players enthusiastically got into the act.
Once you find that in life that is important, the rest is life's gravy.
