davidphogan: I could biatch about not submitting this, but I'm too proud to be a Timbers fan right now to care about that. I was hoping to go, but I just couldn't take the day off.
detroitdoesntsuckthatbad: I was there, one of the more fun experiences in my life./got really freaking dusty during the jersey exchange.//GMFC/PTFC!

HideAndGoFarkYourself: Kid's a soccer player, he's probably faking cancer to get a call.
DemoKnite: Ive been a casual MLS fan since the beginning but never really could get behind a team. The Timbers are my new favorite. Seriously./Im online getting a T-shirt right now.//No, for real.
Warthog: Cocaine and chemo don't mix, they said. What the FARK do they know?
Ryker's Peninsula: It's even better that the Pro team was actually trying to win.
neuroflare: Big deal, this happened in an anime a couple months ago that kids asked to play against an all-star pro team featuring Messi, Ronaldo, Rooney, etc. Probably just ripped that idea off.
HideAndGoFarkYourself: Ryker's Peninsula: It's even better that the Pro team was actually trying to win.No, they weren't. They were making it look like they were trying.If they were trying to win, those kids would have all been crying and bloody and the 4 professionals on the field all would have had 10+ goals apiece.
Pontious Pilates: I have a good friend who works for Make a Wish. Such a great organization, and everyone involved truly loves it. The patients, the donors/celebs, the staff, everyone. It's a job I'd feel real good about waking up to go do every morning.
Dead for Tax Reasons: That's messed up, not only does the kid have cancer but they patronize him by letting him score
FLMountainMan: I have, however, watched the entirety of the US v. Costa Rica blizzard game and everyTimbers game that comes on espn3.com. Those games are so fun to watch.
KaisertheCoyote: Good on you, Timbers.I still hate your team and your annoying wannabe ultra supporters.Go Sounders!
Doogled: FLMountainMan: I have, however, watched the entirety of the US v. Costa Rica blizzard game and everyTimbers game that comes on espn3.com. Those games are so fun to watch.I was there! Just like to brag!/Awesome job by the fans for showing up to the Timbers game
skrame: From the comments:jeffrey-l-bohn:Great story!In a related note, the Miami Marlins have announced that somebody on their team... or in the organization... or somewhere must have cancer. So please come out to the park?This one got a laugh from me.
Warthog: I will forever be bitter about the denial of my Make-a-Wish request. A 12 year old shouldn't be in a strip club, they said. Crazy Horse Two in Las Vegas is no place for kids, they said. Cocaine and chemo don't mix, they said. What the FARK do they know?Kidding. Serious kudos to the organization and to the Timbers for this. Touching. In a good, non-prurient way.
