Portland, OR - Timbers fan Greg Randall spent most of Friday morning hiding his copious collection of Sub Pop records due to the Timbers playing the Seattle Sounders on Sunday.
"I just can't lose any credibility when it comes to my Timbers friends. Some of them are coming over on Saturday to hang out and you just can't leave this kind of stuff out in the record organizer to be found."
Randall lovingly put away his copy of Nirvana's Bleach, along with Sonic Youth, Butthole Surfers and even his well used copy of The Shins' Wincing the Night Away. "It was hard to find a balance between Seattle record and non Seattle bands but all my friends tell me that James Mercer is a bit of a prick anyway." said Randall. "I spent most of the time going through the memories like my autographed Nebula album or the broken Afghan Whigs record that I once threw at my friends head after he disconnected my AOL chat session."
Randall even went through his collection of old Hip Hop records hiding his copy of a limited press of Sir Mix A Lot's "Baby Got Back" that he had been saving to play for DJ Night at his sisters wedding in August.
"It's important to tamp down on these rampant and illicit desires" said Randall. "I'll hide them til Monday, but then I'm going to just blast a few albums to make myself feel better about this whole deal."
