A redonkulous 4-0 win! It didn’t suck at all!
Here’s Timber Joey awarding the players their slabs off the log.
I thought I understood this, for a moment.
“Ah,” I reasoned, “they won 4-0, and TJ is dispensing four slabs o’ wood! I see! He’s handing them out like Olympic medals to the four guys who SCORED those four goals! Got it!” Strange, but it made sense in its own ancient-local-customs way.
Then he hands out a fifth.
So I guess I really don’t understand a goddamned thing about it after all.
Or, was the fifth guy the coach? Owner? Puck magnate?
The fifth he gives to the keeper (the goalie) for shutting out the other team. (I had to ask myself.)
Still easier that American football.
I was a goalie for three years. I never got a huge chunk of tree.
Of course, I wasn’t playing in Portland, which would explain it.
We also never won a game, which would explain it even better.
This was the first time (unless I’ve missed it by being really drunk which is possible) that a slab was given to the goalkeeper for a shutout.
[...] the crowd will be raucous, and maybe, just maybe, the Timbers will surprise us all and go for a redonkulous 4 goals like last [...]
