Frustration Flowers in Rose City

Quakes played well against an injury-ravaged Timbers side, but the soccer gods rolled the bones 3-1 in Portland's favor. Wondo scored #115.

Moments of Timbers madness thwarted fine Quakes form, but Captain Wondo scored #115 to become the 4th place All-Time MLS Goal Scorer.

WEEK 6: #PORvSJE

DOTM:

A reminder that there are several Away Quakes viewing parties around the Bay Area.  Check on Reddit for where people are gathering, or start your own!

Many of the Quakes FO staff can be found at Rookies in San Jose, & at this match there was a guest barkeep:

Just down the road from Avaya is Golden State Brewery, quickly becoming the home of the San Jose Ultras for away matches, as well as after home games. All ages welcome!

& always opportunity to be part of Quakes journalistic history:

But there are Quakes fans all over California:

And if for some reason you can't watch the game on TV, try old-timey radio!

Portland Fans continuing Pacific Northwest tradition of trying hard to distance selves from Quakes and any whiff of a rivalry:

Portland, Seattle, & Vancouver revel in their Cascadia Cup, & Seattle constantly tries to "meh" the significance of the Heritage Cup.  But there's definitely a different buzz in the air & tension on the pitch when the Quakes play the Timbers, and it's building into a quality back-&-forth series of games.  Timbers fans still hurt over Ultra-invovled incidence of violence years ago, & rightfully so.  Hopefully as the quality of matches between Portland & San Jose continues to improve we'll all be able to enjoy our West Coast rivalry.

Though all the Pacific Northwest probably can't wait for Sacramento to enter MLS to distract our attention with the Hella Cup.

Quakes fans hella excited for it too!
