Portland, OR - Portland Timbers fans wildly celebrated their championship victory in Major League Soccer on Sunday evening despite a full understanding of Major League Soccer's standing on a global level.
"I know that Major League Soccer is not a tier 1 league in the world and that the players within the league wouldn't make the starting lineup at Stoke much less Chelsea, but somehow I feel compelled to actually celebrate this win anyway" said Timbers fan Ron Gregory.
With celebrations in Portland spilling out to the street, fans everywhere partied on despite the knowledge that their team plays in a really inferior league.
"According to all international and North American media sources I should be sitting at home, not watching MLS, not watching the Timbers, and bemoaning the league as a sham operation that bilks hard working consumers out of their money," said Sandra Ospina "However, my team just won so I feel like celebrating despite these facts that people keep telling me. While everyone everywhere knows that you watch a league because players were really good, make a lot of money, and get great television ratings, this whole cheering for your local team thing has been fun."
The Nutmeg News will have more on the celebrations from Portland as they appropriately dismiss the Timbers and plan a parade for Bournemouth's standard of play in the English Premier League.
