Gresham, OR - Portland Timbers fan Duane Cartwright admitted that he is 100% confident of a Portland Timbers away win for the 17th time this season as the Timbers take on CD Dragon in El Salvador for the CONCACAF Champions League.
"THIS is the turning point! ABSOLUTELY! I can feel it this time," stated an ebullient and very high Cartwright for the 17th time this season to The Nutmeg News.
"Just because it didn't happen against Houston, or Seattle, or Los Angeles, or Saprissa, or Dallas, or Salt Lake, or Colorado, or San Jose, or Chicago, or New York, or Kansas City, or DC United doesn't mean it can't happen against Dragon. WE CAN ABSOLUTELY WIN THIS GAME LIKE I PREDICTED THAT WE WOULD WIN AGAINST HOUSTON!"
Reportedly, Cartwright has predicted a Timbers win for every single away game this season including the 3-1 loss to Dallas, the 3-1 loss to Seattle, the 3-1 loss to Houston, the 4-1 loss to Orlando, and the 2-1 loss to Vancouver. In each of these games, Cartwright predicted that the Timbers would win, Darlington Nagbe would score and that each game would be a turning point in the Timbers season that would lead back to MLS Cup.
"It's OUR time now," stated Cartwright to the internet. "We can win if we just win this game in El Salvador and then the next two away games and then the home game as well. Then all we need to do is win a play-in playoff game on the road, win two more games on the road and then win MLS Cup on the road. It'll be easy."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Cartwright tries to feel better tonight by watching a DVR saved copy of the Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders debate before passing out in his overstuffed easy chair while watching the Paintball episode of Community.
