We were fortunate enough to have a group of "Friends of the Nest" on the ground in Portland this past Sunday. Tom Faust did us the favor of capturing some video footage, including a pre-game predictions from the Thirsty Lion, half time comments and even the equalizing penalty by DeRo. In addition to the video, which you can view above, Tom took some shots around the ground and from his vantage point close to the Timbers Army. You can view a Flickr slideshow of his photos here.
Our good friend Dan Dickinson also has a fantastic set of pictures from the RBNY supporters section, which you can access here. Both sets really give you a great sense of the atmosphere inside and outside the ground. He also got a birds-eye view of the DeRo penalty and was kind enough to upload it on YouTube for us:
Massive thanks to Tom and Dan for providing us with the pictures and footage. Taking a trip to see an RBNY game in the Pacific Northwest it is an experience not to be missed. Storming back and escaping the lion's den with a 3-3 draw in injury time makes it even sweeter.
