Cool! Those dudes are all buddies off the field. What's the rumor mill in Portland saying about Valeri staying?

Also, I had to google "Camp Flog Gnaw"...

Not sure about the rumor mill, but based on conversations I've had with him I don't expect him back. He's been getting dicked around by GW/MP since January & we just announced an extension on Blanco as a DP so...

That's a shame! Merritt Paulson seems like kind of a dick, but I'm biased.

There are people in Portland that will agree with you. I disagree, but he's definitely a "type" and I get why people think that. He takes the shit we give him before every match pretty well. I had an interesting conversation with him in the stands* before the game right as the Iron Front shit really got heated (I think it was the week after one of the Seattle folks got booted from a LAG match for their Always Seattle, Always Anti-Fascist banner", where we were both definitely heated but had a good talk. I'd like to think that was the beginning of him pulling his head out of his ass about all that, but I doubt it.

Wow. Seemingly all 69,000+ seats for the final (may have increased capacity to 72,000 with temporary seating) were sold out to season ticket holders and Sounders/MLS corporate sponsors through pre-sales before anything opened up to the general public. I know a bunch of people who entered the queue online right when the general public ticket sales went live at 10:00, and nobody got anything. Prices for tickets on stubhub right now start at $300 and go as high as $2500 - for regular seats. Nutso. Wonder if there's a way to access the Toronto allocation through their team's website...

Hopefully Toronto's allocation is the full 5% and is sold through their SGs, but I doubt it.

Me too. Even though MLS didn't get their hoped for/hyped up LAFC vs Atlanta FC match-up, they're still gonna MLS the shit out of this game.

Decent game. At least neither team had any particularly controversial calls for or against them. Toronto was definitely the better team through the first half and to start the second half. If we're gonna beat anybody, I'm bummed that it's Toronto. Seems like a good organization and fan base.

Maybe because this isn’t Instagram, and we’re all not a bunch of teenage girls? 

I could be wrong though...

I thought that said "Why can't I make my own posts" and I thought I had an actual problem to solve.

Rest in Peace Jake

I dunno how people with boards mounted on walls or lying around do it. If I have a board in my field of vision, I can't think of anything else.

Last year when I got a Korua Pencil+ I had it standing in the living room area (loft-type apartment)… I would just stare at it. During dinner, the wife would be talking and I'd turn to look at the board (p.s.: do not do this). As soon as I put it away I was fine.

Same this year. Moon Buggy came in, I had to put it away. Brought up the old Supermodel and then got the Fish… for a few days before packing them away from the trip, I was useless!

Guess I am preoccupied…
