Can Anything Good Come From Tacoma?

But you, O Tacoma,
    who are too little to be among the clans of Oregon,
from you shall come forth for me
    one who is to be ruler of all Timbers

And the remnant of Timbers shall be among the Washingtonians,
    in the midst of many Sounders fans,
like a logger at the Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium,
    like a chain-saw wielding logger chopping down manatee,
who, when he goes through, treads down
    and tears in pieces for the flounder tin, and there is none to deliver.
Your hand shall be lifted up over your adversaries,
    and all your enemies shall be cut down

Heh. It's awesome that Porter was born here, and he did some amazing things at Akron, but this is Sounders country, son. In Sigi we trust.

Tacoma and the South Sound have some amazing soccer connections.

yup!  I was shocked to learn that Bruce Arena played for the Tacoma Tide as a goalkeeper way back when.
Raphael Cox from Tacoma is playing for the Tampa Bay Rowdies and won the NASL Soccer Bowl last year.  Not to mention he was with Real Salt Lake when they won the MLS Cup.
It makes my Tacoma heart happy!

do we still trust in Sigi?  methinks he may be out a job next year.

Ha. Certainly a possibility. Team is still in the playoffs, though.

But lots of people trying to read the tea leaves. And watching the Bob Bradley situation closely...
